When we moved here a few weeks ago the first thing I had done was replacement of all of the locks on the house. This included the padlocks on the outbuildings. We were not going to spend a night in the house without doing that first. The second thing I had done before moving was have the montgomery village adt company that did the alarm at our apartment come out and install a system at our new house.
It is just smart to replace the locks when you move into a new place. Even if you completely trust the seller, do you know how many keys they have handed out over the years? Do they still have the same locks as the people who lived there before them? Since it is a variable that is not entirely knowable, the best course of action is to replace all the locks. I used a licensed and bonded locksmith company that has been in business for generations. I also called the company who put in our alarm system at our apartment to come out and put one in our new house. We did all this before spending the first night in our new home.
Why? Because it is just the smart thing to do. Continue reading
I have a high school diploma, and half a year of college. I dropped out of college when I went right after high school because I did not know what I wanted to do and my parents decided that they did not want to pay for me to go to school if I did not know what I wanted to go for. I met my husband shortly thereafter and he had a great job so I was able to stay home and raise our two kids. I decided to become a red deer real estate agent after my kids were old enough to go to school, I would be able to go to school and take my real estate classes at night when my husband was with the kids.

I just recently secured a great job opportunity in Washington, DC, and as such, I am going to have to move to the area pretty soon, so that I can start my new job. I really think that this is going to be a great job opportunity for me, and it should have a lot of potential for future advancement in the company. As such, I am going to be looking for real estate in washington dc and I am thinking about actually going ahead and buying a house, as opposed to renting an apartment for the time being, which is what I originally had in mind.
I think that buying a house is just a much better use of my money, as it can be viewed as an investment, and renting an apartment can definitely not be viewed as an investment. I do not know how much it is going to cost to buy a house in the DC area, as I know very little about the real estate market in that part of the country at this point in time. I can imagine that the housing is fairly expensive though, due to the location.
I want to find a good deal on real estate in DC, but I also want to make sure that I am buying a great place to live. Right now, my wife is pregnant, so I am also probably going to be purchasing the house that my son will grow up in. That means I should take extra care when picking out a house to buy, and I am going to look for a house that is located within a good school district as well. I have a number of other concerns about purchasing a house, but I am going to start looking for real estate listings at the moment.
