Tips For Maintaining Your Charlotte Area Home In 2017 (Painlessly)

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Executive | Charlotte, NC

With the new year upon us, it's a great time to put together your annual schedule to maintain your Charlotte metro area home month by month in 2017. We know that when we neglect  home maintenance, the ultimate cost to repair and replace is often much higher than just maintaining as you go. It can be overwhelming to think about all the things that go into maintaining a home on an ongoing basis. But, as with many thing in life, if you plan and schedule to do a little bit each week or each month it all manages to get done. As that expression goes: "How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time." It's no different with maintaining your home in top condition... one bite at a time... or more accurately, one month at a time.

 

The Yearly Homeowner Maintenance Checklist below from Amerifirst Home Morgage provides a great monthly plan to maintaining your home throughout the year.

Hi Nina - that certainly is comprehensive but if you spread it out it is not so much.

Grant Schneider ~ good morning, Grant... that was my whole message... so many homeowners find it overwhelming to think about in the macro sense they end up doing nothing.

Thanks for sharing this terrific list. There's a lot to do to maintain a home, no matter where you live or what conditions it's in. The list can be overwhelming if you don't parcel it out over time - and it works better for the budget. But some things need attention right away, right?!

Wow, is that ever comprehensive! Glad that Carol Williams included it in her recent post that was highlighted by our buddy, Patricia Kennedy!

Gotta bookmark it as a cheatsheet for me to nudge sellers, when appropriate.
