Tip. No. 1: Be FRIENDLY.


These two words are simple but very powerful. If you are new to a neighborhood, it is best to get to know more people. In this way, you can have someone to keep an eye on your house while your out shopping for additional stuff for your new home in Cedar Rapids.


Tip No. 2: CHANGE locks


Moving into a pre-existing home is great! But you need to ensure whoever had the old keys to the house have surrendered it to you.


Don't take second chances. Replace all of the locks of your home with a new one. This way, you can eliminate all the possibility of scrupulous individuals attempting to enter your house with an old lock. However, if you are just renting then it is better to ask your landlord first about this.
