Home buyers receive a set of keys to the home at closing, but who knows how many other people have a copy of those keys? Could be contractors, real estate agents
, neighbors or a kid who found a set lying in the street. It's a good idea to obtain a new set of keys. Some first-time home buyers
might prefer a new handle and lockset, especially if the existing hardware is outdated or worn.
Why not hire a locksmith to re-key all the doors for that first-time home buyer? A locksmith can key all the doors, including the garage, to use one key. Giving new keys is a thoughtful gift, and it promotes security.
