Purchasing your first home will be one of the most rewarding and fulfilling parts of your life. Itís an important milestone on the way to financial independence and to starting a family for millions of Americans.

It also comes with a lot of responsibilities and unforeseen expenses.

A Reddit user asked the online community what items ended up being useful to them that they didnít think about beforehand. The result was a ton of great advice for new or soon-to-be homeowners.

In todayís post, Iíve broken down the most useful items from all of their responses. So, if youíre going to be a

1. Information about past purchases

One user found that the most useful thing the previous owner left behind were a number of receipts for appliances that would be left in the house. In addition, they also left a list of model numbers for important parts like faucets, and list of all of the paint colors used in the house.

In addition, the previous homeowners even left a binder full of menus for local restaurants. While the seller of your next home might not think to leave behind all of this useful info for you, it doesnít hurt to ask in case they have some of that information saved that theyíll no longer need.

2. Ten thousand dollars

While this comment may be a bit tongue-in-cheek, it does illustrate an important fact for new homeowners: expect to spend some money. As the poster pointed out, there isnít necessarily one thing that youíll need. More likely, youíll find yourself running to the hardware store often for a number of small purchases.

Setting aside some money for these initial expenses is a good idea so that you can get the most out of your home in the first few months living in it without worrying about how or when youíre going to replace some of the many small, but annoying, fixes youíll experience in your new house.

3. A steel hand cart

From day one and onward, youíll be moving a lot of things around your home. Heavy objects like dressers, drawers, refrigerators, and other furniture and appliances will often require two people to move. Well, if you live alone or you and your spouse work different hours, it isnít always possible to have two people around to help lift and move something. To save time and prevent injury, having a dolly (A.K.A. a steel hard cart) on hand will make things easier.

4. Check your cell phone signal before moving day

In spite of the claims of the major cellular carriers, there are still many areas of the U.S. that have little or no reception. This can come as a shock on moving day if you havenít planned ahead.

Fortunately, you can purchase a device called a microcell to boost the cellular signal in your home, preventing dropped calls.

5. A Carbon monoxide and smoke detector, and fresh batteries

As much as you may trust the previous owners, thereís no way to be certain that there arenít any fire or CO hazards in the home that youíre unaware of. Getting new detectors, batteries, and installing them immediately will help you rest easy on your first night.
