Being a homeowner comes with tons of responsibility. It can also include hefty bills paid to service contractors if you don’t take matters into your own hands and tackle doing things yourself. On this week’s show, New House Know-How, Part 1, we discussed five basic things to know when you become a homeowner. You may be a longtime homeowner and think our list is almost too basic, but run it by your non-homeowner friends. You may be surprised that they don’t know what they don’t know. We want to encourage new and longtime homeowners alike to get to know their house and the systems that keep it running.
