Concerns of a first time buyer..
One of the concerns of being a homeowner is finding reputable contractors and handymen especially when they buy a resale home.
When they are renting , they just call the maintenance man or property manager even when they just see some ants and ask for them to send an exterminator. If there is no heat they keep on calling every few hours . Buyers feel overwhelmed thinking of maintaining their homes. Buyers often tell me they do not know whom to call .
I always recommend that buyers purchase a home warranty if the seller does not offer one. I give them the brochures so they can read the fine print .
I also give names of handymen that I have used or other clients have used.
There are some who do not want to take care of the lawn but do not want to live in a condo . I mention the costs of getting the lawn mowed in the area and give them names of some landscapers so they can get estimates.
I do not forget about my clients once they have settled on the house. I keep in touch and help in any way I can.
