What is HomeBinder?
HomeBinder is a digital 3-ring binder to track and manage your home information down to the paint colors for each room. Instead of keeping contractor work receipts, appliance warranty information, and paint number sticks stuffed in a box, HomeBinder gives homeowner’s a place to upload receipts, input contractor phone numbers and track appliance purchase cost and warranties. HomeBinder will automatically email customers of any recalls and provide reminders for regular maintenance, from appliances to the lawn. HomeBinder can also be used to maintain an inventory of all items in the home in case of fire or theft.
Why Choose HomeBinder?
Regular maintenance of appliances is key to keeping them working efficiently for a long time. When it is time to sell your home, your HomeBinder information will be a huge asset as many buyers are understandably skeptical about what will be their biggest purchase. Having records of when maintenance was done, what was done and by whom could make prospective buyers more interested in your property. HomeBinder also produces a sellers report that is more detailed than the one produced by real estate agents. Sellers additionally benefit from good record keeping as documented improvements increase your tax basis and reduce your tax liability.
Why Own Up Partners with HomeBinder.
