Moving into your first house can be an overwhelming experience if you don't have at least a basic working knowledge of how the mechanical systems in your house function. There are many good home repair shows on television that can help you learn how to make simple repairs. The problem with these shows are their limited time so they have to leave out many details. Secondly, if you are unfamiliar with the parts that make up a system, you can become confused when your dirty, rusty parts don't look exactly like those nice new clean ones on tv! We would recommend good home repair books loaded with photos plus the tv series shows along with familiarizing yourself with the systems in your own home. We offer home tutoring in your own home on your own equipment. This can be tailored to your individual needs such as a basic overall review of how each system functions and the basic maintenance needed for each. If you need knowledge on only one particular system we can concentrate on that exclusively. Knowing your equipment can avoid many panic attacks when a problem arises. Even if you don't want to tackle the repair yourself, you can shut down or isolate a problem system until a service person can be reached. Knowing what you are talking about can help you avoid being taken advantage of.
SELLING YOUR HOME
Preparing a house properly for the real estate market requires a knowledge of what buyers, brokers, inspectors and banks look for in a good property. Sellers should do their part in cosmetically preparing the house to make it attractive. Once you have a potential buyer the house must be mechanically sound to pass all inspections and not slow up an otherwise speedy process. Problems that could have easily been corrected prior to putting the house on the market can lead to delays and loss of interest after they are discovered. Russell Surveying Services can help you to prepare your home Plumbing and Heating services to meet approval from loan agency home inspections and even recommend additions or improvements to realise the full potential of your house.
