You may have just bought your house and not even be thinking about selling it. Or maybe you are ready to move and sell your current place, either way, you should highly consider creating a homeowner management binder to help you keep all of your home matters organized in one system that you have quick and easy access to.
Keeping all the information that matters about your property in one place can reduce stress and even help sell your home faster whenever you are ready to sell. It can also help you by keeping important receipts and telephone number for contractors and businesses that have done work in your home in case you ever need to retrieve those.
As a realtor, I recommend all my clients to invest in a homeowner management binder and include the following:
Typical Utility Costs
Home Maintenance Costs
Home Maintenance Checklist
Warranty and Manuals
Nearby restaurants, attractions and amenities
HOA important info (when applicable)
