Nevada -- After looking at dozens of homes, you finally find the perfect house and
get your offer accepted. It’s an
exciting time, however, before picking out your new paint or calling the moving
truck, there are a few things you must do in order to protect yourself and your
a house, you should never, ever move your personal belongings into the home
until you have a locksmith change ALL THE LOCKS. You have no idea who still has
a copy of the key (i.e. previous owners, past tenants, kids of past owners,
their boyfriend’s, girlfriends, neighbors, cleaning companies, etc.) Same goes
for mailbox keys. Go to the Post Office and have them change the lock on your
mailbox. You certainly don't want a past owner, or tenant using a copy of the
mailbox key and stealing your account numbers, credit cards, etc. Garage
remotes too!!!! Do you really want the prior owners old nasty remote? (Maybe
they didn't wash their hands or have good hygiene?) You can get a new universal
garage remote at Home Depot for around $30 bucks and it takes seconds to
program. Does the home have a keyless entry on the front door or garage? Change
has led the nation in foreclosures, short sales, etc. Many families lost their homes and investors
have been buying everything in sight.
Additionally, thousands of homes in Las Vegas have been sold, (or
flipped) several times over the past few years.
The last thing you need is to buy a home not knowing if a prior
disgruntled owner or tenant still has copies of the keys and/or remotes.
