5 Things You Might Need to Buy After Purchasing A Home

Moving into a new home is one of the most massive life events you will ever endure. Yes, we picked the word "endure" on purpose. Don’t get us wrong, in a year’s time it will be remembered for all the excitement and you’ll tell stories about how far you’ve come since then. But at the time, wow, it is intense, tiring, exhausting and stressful. Not just the act of buying and moving either, but the first few weeks afterward too. That’s when you’ll realize that your home-buying budget should have extended into a Things You’ll Need To Buy For Your New Home Budget as well.

You’ll get to that moment, where the keys are in your hand, the money has left your account, everything is signed off and you open the door, and that’s when you’re suddenly hit by a second wave of stress. So, to help minimize this as much as possible, we have come up with a list of things you may want to consider buying ASAP.


New Keys And Locks
Changing your locks is a first-day sort of job. This is because most people give out keys to their home all willy-nilly. The neighbors you haven’t met probably have a set, so do the old owners friends and possible co-workers, as well as maintenance people and the agents. So, yeah, change the locks or just add some dead bolts, to begin with.


You’ve just forked out for a new home, which means you are probably a little bit cash strapped at the moment and the thought of getting a gardener in isn’t exactly an attractive one. However, you don’t want your yard to get all overgrown and ruin your new home happiness, so try and grab a lawn mower as soon as you can, even if it is a used one from Craigslist.


What size you will need depends on what size of home you have, or what size rooms, in which case size can be of big influence. The important thing to note, though, is that you will probably want to invest in one early on. It could be you want to use the basement that is currently a no-go area. Or maybe the mildew in the crawl space isn’t ideal. Or you need to dry out the walls before you start painting. The point is a dehumidifier will probably come in handy.


Outdoors Bits
The amount of times you will look out of the window and wish you had the accessories to enjoy your new yard will be infinite. So make sure you budget for things like patio furniture, a sunbrella, and a barbecue. Nothing says you have arrived in your new place like being able to enjoy your little slice of the great outdoors. They don’t have to be expensive, but they can make the evenings that much more wonderful.


Big Appliances

These tend to cost a fair chunk, but they are worth getting as soon as you move in. We’re talking about a refrigerator, oven and a washing machine (maybe a dryer too). By hesitating on these things you will simply be spending money on eating out and Launderettes which, after a week, will probably amount to the cost of at least two of these.

These are just a few things you might need to buy after purchasing a new home. See you soon!
