Bringing home baby can be stressful but making sure your home is safe for baby is a part of being a new parent. You may think that there isn’t much a newborn can do or get into but before you know it your tiny little baby will be toddling around and getting into everything.

Here are some quick baby proofing tips to get you started:

-Check the crib slats and make sure they are no further than 2 3/8th inches apart.

-No soft bedding, blankets or toys in the cribs which can cause suffocation.

-Remove hanging cords and secure them from window blinds and treatments.

-Plug all electrical outlets.

-Set the water heater to no more than 120 degrees Fahrenheit.

-Install locking lids on all toilets.

-Store poisons, including medications in a high cabinet. All medications and toxic chemicals should also have safety lids.

-Use foam corners to soften all the hard and sharp corners of tables, the hearth etc.

-Install baby proof locks on drawers and cabinets.

-Door locks and hinge protectors are also good ideas for doors to rooms and closets.

These are just a few tips for baby proofing your home. You can find more information on how to keep kids safe from the American Academy of Pediatrics at HealthyChildren.org.

Trying to buy and sell a home at the same time can be tough. Sometimes these buyers and sellers are referred to as being in a sandwich because they are in the middle. The reason this can be difficult is because there is no guarantee that your new home will close at the same time as your old home.

Selling and buying a home at the same time is possible but you will need help. Here are a few tips on how to get into your home while closing on your own home:

1. Hire a real estate professional. This is almost an impossible task without having a seasoned professional by your side. There are lots of details that go into selling and buying and an experienced real estate professional will know just what to do to get you to both closing tables.

2. Sell first, and then buy. This is probably the easiest and safest plan. List your home for sale and secure a buyer. You can either close on your home before purchasing another one, or ask the buyer for a contingency to allow you time to find a new home before closing on the previous one. There are many advantages to selling first, it allows you to know how much you can spend on a new home, and you don’t have to worry about temporary financing.

3. Try to schedule the closing date on the purchase of your new home on the same day, but after the closing on the home you are selling. This way, you can stay in your present home until you move into your new one.

Bottom line, when it comes to selling and buying a home use the expertise of your real estate professional. Your plans may change depending on your circumstances and your local market.
