You’ve purchasing your dream home… whether it be your very first home, a vacation home or an investment property, there’s surely going to be maintenance needed. In general, no one will be more familiar with the property than the seller. Consider getting a jump on future needs by asking your agent to communicate with the seller’s agent regarding contact information for the current service professionals who care for the property. Or ask your Steele Associates agent for references to trusted local companies (you can also visit our “Local Services” page). A homeowner’s work is never done, but at Steele Associates Real Estate we hope we can make the process of buying and caring for your home a little easier. This downloadable New Homeowner Checklist offers a quick reference sheet (click the link for a printable PDF).
