Home Maintenance Schedule & Checklist

 

2020 Home Maintenance Checklist & Schedule

 

Owning a home requires more than just the financial responsibility of making timely mortgage and tax payments. Owning a home also requires maintaining your home. I like to remind my clients that their home is a living and breathing entity and that a home needs to be taken care of on a consistent basis to keep it in tip top shape. Deferred and neglected home maintenance will ultimately cost more to repair than the time and cost involved in maintaining a home consistently throughout the year and every single year. For most Americans, their homes are their single largest financial investments... it just makes sense to care for that investment to keep its long term value from slipping.

 

 

Do You Know What The Top 5 Home Maintenance Tasks Are?

According to home inspectors, the top 5 tasks with the biggest payback in terms of maintaining your large mechanicals and the overall structural integrity of the home are:

  1. Cleaning your gutters
  2. Servicing your heating and cooling systems
  3. Flushing out clogs on a regular basis
  4. Exterminating pests immediately
  5. Draining your hot water heater

 

 

Home Maintenance & Inspection Schedule

 

The best way to stay on top of all the tasks involved in maintaining your home is to have an annual schedule and checklist, like the one pictured below. This schedule provides reminders about monthly, seasonal and annual maintenance... easy to follow and easy to do

Fantastic post Nina! More people should do those simple maintenance tips to ensure their property remains in good shape and they can also garner more money when/if they decide to sell. p.s. Kathy Streib re-blogged this post.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! good morning, Wanda... I've seen issues in homes that cost a bundle of money to fix that would have cost a fraction of that if handled early on.
