When buying a home, most people probably first think of the financial responsibility.  Don’t let yourself forget, however, about the time and labor that home ownership also requires.  Just like regular oil changes for your car keep your engine happy and healthy, keeping up with regular home maintenance tasks will keep you from future headaches and wasted money.

It can be intimidating to think about these various tasks, especially if you’re a new homeowner.  It’s a long list — there’s no denying that.  If you find you need help, please call one of our preferred vendors listed HERE to help you out.

In order to maximize your efficiency and actually get all of these tasks done, you might want to create a home maintenance calendar for yourself.  Whether online or on paper, you can jot down small, regular tasks for each weekend and not be too overwhelmed.

HERE is a list of tasks that need to be done monthly, quarterly, and biannually, as well as a list of tasks to be completed seasonally.  Not every expert agrees as to which task needs to be done in which season, so this isn’t a black and white list, necessarily.  Do what works for you and your schedule, and as long as all these things get accomplished, your home will be happy for years and years to come.
