Home management is crucial to the value, safety, health of your home, and ultimately, your family. Your home is oftentimes your largest asset. Its components require care & attention. There are three key areas that help you to manage it properly.

Home Inventory

Tracking possessions you've purchased over the years helps you understand how much you've invested in decorating, improving & adding to your home. The benefits of a home inventory include:

  • Proper Insurance: Your inventory ensures you are fully insured.
  • Claims Reimbursement: When situations arise, it is faster, easier & more accurate when submitting your claim. Complete records can maximize reimbursement.
  • Maintenance & Repairs: Knowing which equipment & appliances you own helps to properly perform necessary maintenance.
  • Moving List: Using an inventory for a moving list helps ensure that possessions arrive at your new home.
  • Estate Planning: Tracking possessions helps you to plan how they will be distributed.

Home Maintenance

Your home's parts require regular maintenance. Home maintenance is tracking & inspecting equipment, replacing consumables, fixing structural issues, and deep cleaning of specific areas. Proper maintenance can:

  • Save Money On Replacement Costs: Proper maintenance can alleviate the need to replace equipment & appliances.
  • Keep your home safe & healthy: Cleaning a dryer vent can prevent fires. Changing air filters maintains good air quality, reduces wear & tear on Heating & A/C units.
  • Reduce Utility Costs: With efficient, well-maintained equipment, utility costs are kept to a minimum.
  • Improve Home Value: Home Values may increase since the home is properly maintained & is documented.

Home Remodeling

Managing home remodeling has a direct impact on the look & feel of your home. Using the proper tools to manage your projects helps to:

  • Manage budgets: Keeping project budgets can directly impact your overall financial portfolio.
  • Manage remodels: Staying focused on the overall process helps you understand the details of your projects.

Knowing how to manage a large asset is crucial to maintaining its value. Managing your home, with its many parts, requires your attention to both maintain AND INCREASE value!
