This is a sponsored post in behalf of HomeZada to aid in home maintenance. All opinions are my own.
The husband and I are quite excited to be closing on our first home in a few weeks. But even in light of all that excitement; there is quite a bit of nervousness. It’s our first home. And up to this point in our lives; we’ve never had to be fully responsible for a home before. Home maintenance was never something we had to put in a lot of attention. Our landlord was always in charge of that. But now as home owners we need to take the lead if we want to protect our investment.
The Burden of Home Maintenance
Every time we talked about owning our own home; people would continually say “oh but think of all the extra stress and work you have to do? If something breaks you can’t call the landlord!” Or they would always be sure to point out how hard home maintenance was. It was almost as if they were trying to talk us out of it. But you know; the comfort of owning your own home and having that investment is worth the trade off. A place that you can actually call your own. Being able to turn a house into a home. YOUR home.
But at we prepare for our own home; we are learning about all that goes into home maintenance. A lot more than we originally thought. Has it changed our mind about wanting to own a home? No. Especially when rent for a smaller home would cost just as much if not more each month; but without the benefit of an investment that can pay off down the road. But it does make us realize we need a good way to keep it all organized. That is why I have turned to HomeZada.
HomeZada is a brilliant site that helps you to manage your home’s inventory, maintenance checklists, home improvement projects and “to do”s in an easy to use online application. Basically it keeps everything about your home in one place instead of our current incomplete records scattered in multiple files, boxes, kitchen drawers, etc all over the house!
HomeZada consolidates all this information in one online software application which can be accessed via your computer or mobile device. Let me give you a short look inside!
First you sign up and set up your home profile. You include information like how many rooms your home has. Also basics like if you have rain gutters, furnace, central air, etc. Then it takes all the common home maintenance projects and easily schedules them for you throughout the year!
No more forgetting to replace the air filter! And now you will know the best time of the year to get your air vents cleaned! And don’t worry if you don’t know how to do a home maintenance project! They have easy to follow “How To” Videos attached to!
Plus you can also track all of your home expenses, home repair projects, before and after photos can be uploaded for proof and lots more!
Then visit the inventory tab! This is great for insurance claims or just keeping track of your possessions. You can record what items your home has, and you can include photos that you take and upload. So if you get robbed, or a fire occurs, or any kind of natural disaster, you have the proof right there online to showcase all that you owned for your insurance claims.
There is so much that in included in home maintenance. And it can be quite overwhelming to keep it all straight. I know I was feeling a bit overwhelmed there for a bit as I was struggling to get it all organized and planned out. HomeZada can actually do all the hard work of organizing your home maintenance for you. And all you have to worry about is doing the actual projects when HomeZada reminds you to do them. It takes the guess work out of home maintenance!
