5 Ways to Improve Your Property Before You Move In


If you have just bought a home, but you feel you need to work on making things more efficient with some home improvement, then you may be on the right track. The following tips will give you an idea what you can do before the big move-in day in terms of home improvement. Let’s begin with some of the more obvious ones on our five tips:

• Replace the locks outside, as they will be at risk in case some of the previous owners have spare keys. No matter how nice and friendly the transfer of ownership happened, you should keep in mind that this home is now yours and you need to do what you can to keep it that way. Use higher quality locks and either use a locksmith to install the complicated ones or buy some from your nearest home improvement store and install them yourself.

• Another thing you can do is to work on improving the kitchen and bathroom in your new home. You don’t have to necessarily remodel the entire thing, but you might want to work on updating them before you set your boxes down and you unpack. Swap counters, sinks, faucets and other smaller details in both locations for a more fresh, but working look that doesn’t stray too far from what you need. It will also save you the trouble of dealing with it later down the line if you feel you don’t like what you found when you bought the property.

• Remove old wallpaper from the walls and make sure you replace it with something new and fresh. This will not only improve the rooms visually, but it will also make your future home improvement efforts less taxing. Do it with a steamer or a product made for the purpose, just do so before moving in.

• You can also do a good bit of painting, whether on the inside or the outside. The advantage to that should be fairly obvious – you can paint the home in the colors of your choosing, rather than what you found when you decided to buy it. It will be much easier than dealing with wallpaper removal, but you should still do this while the place is empty.

• The last improvement on our list is the replacement of flooring where needed. If you see the rooms are not in perfect shape and you feel you can do better, you can pick a different type of floor to work with. You can usually get a better price with a company that focuses on such tasks if you have an empty home rather than one that’s already lived in due to the logistics involved.
