Owning a home is something most of us dream of! I know I’m looking forward to the day I buy my first home, but seeing the stress my mom has gone through as a homeowner and a landlord has made me hold off a bit. It can be expensive to make repairs, especially ones that blindside you in the middle of winter, like a leaky roof or an air conditioner that decides it no longer wants to operate when it’s a 110 degrees out with no breeze in the middle of July. In fact, a recent ServiceMaster survey says “58% of homeowners and prospective buyers say they feel unprepared to deal with home maintenance needs”, so I’m definitely not alone!
Yesterday, I was joined by renowned lifestyle expert Justine Santaniello who shared basic tips for homeowners on how they can keep their homes in good shape and avoid surprises, she dished on steps they can take themselves to minimize the risk or impact of something going wrong, and she also talked about the ServiceMaster’s sweepstakes for homeowners! PS: The grand prize is a $5,000 Home Depot gift card, so you’ll definitely want to enter to win.
All you have to do is go to the ServiceMaster’s Facebook page, look for the hashtag #Fixmyhousesweeps and enter there. Be sure to watch the video below for my interview with Justine Santaniello in its entirety for more details on how you can keep your home in good shape and the ServiceMaster’s sweepstakes for homeowners.
