Finding a new home – Preparing to move in to your new home in the Conejo Valley

Now that escrow is closed, it is time to take possession of your new home. There are just a few things to keep in mind:

After you move in, call a locksmith and have all of your locks changed. You should also reset your garage door opener code. This is done by changing the setting on the remote control and on your opener.

You should also use all of the systems in your home to verify that they are in working order at time of possession. If any are not functioning correctly, call me as soon as possible.

You will be given a Property Maintenance Schedule at the walk-through inspection. This is a checklist of items that require inspection or service on a regular basis; it is divided into things that need to be done once, twice, or four times per year. Many owners never attend to these items. They wait until something breaks and then they fix it. By carefully following the suggested maintenance schedule, you can ensure that the items in your home last much longer. The idea is that a little time and money along the way will save you a lot of time and money later.


Many real estate agents disappear immediately after a transaction, but my commitment to you extends long after the purchase of your home. Whenever you have questions or concerns regarding your home, your neighborhood, or general real estate trends, please don’t hesitate to call or email.

Also, as you come across friends and family members in need of a skilled and experienced realtor, please send them my way. I look forward to giving them the same great service that I have given you.

Buying a home is a very important decision, as well as a large undertaking, and it is a pleasure and a privilege to be able to assist you in obtaining your very own vision of “The American Dream.”

Thank you!
