Homebinder makes is easy to not forget some of the mundane tasks around the house by having scheduled maintenance reminders. It comes preloaded with common reminders that we (Safeline Home Inspections) thinks are important. However, if there is something your house needs that is not on the list you have the option to add it. Some common reminders are:
A part of owning a house is maintenance. Some of the maintenance is simple enough that you can do it yourself. Some of it you may want to rely on a professional that can do it for you. When its time to tackle something that you can do yourself the question always is, "Who do you recommend?"
Well, we are happy to help you answer this question. In Homebinder there is a section that provides you with all of the contractors that we would recommend. The list is exclusive to only companies that we personally know, have seen their work first hand, and trust that they will do a great job for you.
If you find your own contractors that you like feel free to add them to your list. Keeping a list of good contractors that you have previously worked with is important. You never know when something in your house is going to need fixing.
Let's say you are buying a house that is a fixer-upper. Or maybe it just needs a bathroom or kitchen renovation. Homebinder is the best place to keep up with any projects that you may be working on in your house. You can store whatever information you think is important for keeping up with the project. They could be things like:
Home Inventory is important. Did you know that after you move into a house you have the highest chance of being broken into and robbed? Home sales, unfortunately, are public records. Robbers know that its often a chaotic time. Everything is in boxes, and most new homes don't have the alarm system operating yet, so they take advantage of the situation.
We recommend getting a security system install ASAP before you move in. That would be a huge deterrent. The other thing we recommend is to take inventory of the things that you own in your house.
Sure, taking pictures of thing and serial numbers is a very mundane thing. But in the event of a robbery or fire and you lose everything; taking inventory is the only want to prove that you actually own what you say you own. In the case of a total loss and you fine with your insurance company. The person with the most information and inventory usually wins. Homebinder is a perfect place you store your inventory.
This last thing is pretty self-explanatory. by uploading paperwork, reports, and receipts to the cloud for safekeeping and easy access, Homebinder becomes you one place to keeping up and maintaining your home.
