Living in an apartment and rental homes for the last 20 years, I never had the experience of worrying about maintenance and repairs. I simply picked up a phone and call the property manager and the repairs were done. Needless to say, the first time I was faced with a major repair in my new home, I was shocked. By the time the service pro went over every item that would need to be regularly serviced, I was ready to sell. This blog is for people like me who have no experience with being homeowners and now find themselves feeling overwhelming.
