Monthly Checklists for Home Maintenance - November Edition

Tuesday, November 1st, 2016 at 12:04pm Engel & Völkers Intown Atlanta

Staying on top of daily, monthly, and annual chores around your home is a necessary ‘evil’ if you want to enhance the likelihood that your property will continue to go UP in value over the years ahead. Maintenance and repair jobs are constants. While collectively maintaining your property is a big job, when broken down into monthly tasks, it is not as overwhelming.
To save time and money, plan for the seasonal needs of your home, yard, and garden by utilizing our new monthly checklists. This will help you stay on top of the activities in and around your real estate investment. Each blog post has a "to do" list as well as a list of sales that typically occur each month. Each checklist is just a suggestion for tasks and may vary depending on your personal preferences.
