This is a great solution. I did the same thing when I bought my new home. Paranoid at the core (aren't we all?), I didn't want anyone else being involved in the process. I bought a Schlage kit at Amazon (http://amzn.com/B00002N768) for $70 and then spent an hour changing 3 locks.

The tricky part was getting a new key to set the locks to. You can buy keys from Amazon, eBay, etc., but the last thing I wanted was a record of a new key being sent to a specific address. I had heard that Home Depot and Lowes had boxes of keys that they would pull from when they did rekeys, and it was suggested that if you asked nicely they would give you one. I asked, and sweetened it by buying a few copies, and they happily obliged. I just took the new key and re-pinned my locks to match it.

This is the kit I got. As long as all of your locks/knobs are all schlage, you'll be good to go. There may be cheaper options with less pins, just make sure you get all the tools.

Just a word of advice, be careful opening it up, I opened it upside down and the pins went everywhere. Took a LONG time to sort them out since the size difference is extremely hard to tell.

+1. I have a kit for Schlage and a similar kit for Kwikset. Probably found something cheaper on eBay. You'll need a good pair of tweezers and a steady hand.

Once you pick this skill up, it's one less thing to pay a locksmith for. You can even do master systems so that one key opens multiple locks, but each lock has its own separate key.
