​​​​TEXAS – Paint? Clean? Unpack? Shop? Meet the Neighbors? 

None of the above!​

Patricia Feager, a real estate agent with Dallas Fine Properties, says that when you first move you should become familiar with your home and know your grounds. 

Get Familiar

  • If you have small children, keep your children safe. Are the doors locked and secure and did you change the locks?
  • Spend quality time with small children before the movers get there and teach children what they need to do and explain what they need to know.
  • Do not rely on previous home inspection reports, this is your home and you need to get familiar with all its quirks.
  • Take every measure to promote safety for all family members, including the elderly.

Know Your Grounds—Safety First!

  • Do you know where the water shut off valves are located?
  • Where is the power to the Electrical Box?
  • Where is the nearest drug store? Medical Facility? Grocery Store?
  • Do you have fresh smoke detector batteries and light bulbs?
  • What local numbers do you need to post and will everyone know what to do in case of an emergency?
  • If your area has tornado warnings and sirens go off, would you know what to do?
  • Do you have a First Aid Kit and fire extinguisher?

A house was not built in one day for a reason—practice safety from the start!​
