Get a Grip on your Property or Home

Know the Facts, DIY the Basics and Better Manage the Results.

Home Management Basics

PLANNING AND RESEARCH Whether you are looking to repair, renovate or rehab a property, do you homework. Research what you want, pricing and watch how-to videos so you KNOW the process and extraneous variable before deciding to DIY the project or hire contractors, and if you need permits, get them because an inspector can save you problems and money down the line.

RESOURCE MANAGEMENT Once you understand HOW things are done, you can save money by doing your own demolition, purchasing your own materials and even doing the finishing touches yourself, and just having contractors do the hard stuff.
