Most Important Things You Need to Buy for Your First Home

January 31, 2017


First-time home buyers who purchase new homes in Midland GA often don’t realize that there are some key items they need to buy, besides furniture, before moving into a new house. Here are a few important things to look for when you go shopping.

Document Holder – When you buy a house, you wind up with a whole bunch of closing documents to store. Since you’re going to need to save other important papers like tax records, it’s wise to invest in a small file cabinet.

Vacuum / Mop / Broom – Keep your new home spic and span by investing in cleaning tools. The type of equipment you’ll need will depend on the flooring of your house, but most a decent vacuum that can handle hardwood floors as well as carpeting should do the trick.

Command Hooks – Hooks are perfect for keeping clothes, keys and other items at arm’s reach when you need them. Choose from plain plastic or attractive metal hooks, depending on your need and home décor.

Smoke Alarm & Fire Extinguisher – Keep your family safe and sound in your new home by investing in smoke alarms for every level of the home, in every bedroom, and outside each sleeping area. Then, pick up a multi-purpose fire extinguisher that can handle small fires involving paper and wood, cooking grease as well as electrical equipment.

First-Aid Kit – Accidents do happen, so it’s good to have a well-stocked first-aid kit on hand with bandages, gauze, and antibiotic ointment.

Bath Mats – One of the more common places accidents can happen in the home is in the bathroom. Keep your family safe by purchasing mats to avoid slipping and sliding on a wet floor.

Trash Cans – It may seem obvious, but trash cans and wastebaskets are a necessity for homeowners to have on hand to store discarded items.

Stepladder – A foldable stepladder is a handy item to have on hand for changing lightbulbs or storing and retrieving items out of kitchen cabinets.

Shower Curtain and Liner – It may seem obvious, but a shower curtain and liner will keep water off of your bathroom floor. There are endless styles to choose from, depending on your taste and budget.
