Buying a new home is a whirlwind of an experience. If this is your first house, everyone has advice for you. What to do, how to do it, how much money you need, who to hire, and more. You may even get superstitious advice as to what to bring into your new home when you arrive. Most advice will end up having little bearing on the actual home purchasing process. However, there is one piece of advice that should never be ignored: change the locks the moment you move in. This can be the whole difference between being safe and being completely caught off guard.

The Truth

Many people are legitimately honest people. People selling a home have been in your shoes before, and they are likely in your shoes again going through their own transaction. They too have a lot going on and are trying to think about everything they need to do. More likely than not, the last thing on their mind is stealing anything from you. However, the homeowners are not the only people who may have a key to the home. Family or friends could have a key that could still open the locks. While theft is unlikely, a lock change is a necessity to maintain your peace of mind.

It Is Easy

The good news is, changing a lock is easy. Most people can do this task with their eyes closed, so to speak. However, in the process of moving, you are likely concerned with numerous other tasks and errands. Therefore, it is best to hire a professional to rekey your lock. You will be sure to have the best type of lock for your home, and you know it will be done to perfection.
