Maintenance Toolbox - Remerica Hometown REALTORS

You're finally settled in your new home, and you have everything you need right at your fingertips – or so you think. Unexpectedly, a minor repair needs to take place, and you realize you weren't as prepared as you thought. Having some common – and not-so-common – tools lying around can be the difference between an easy fix or an unnecessary headache. New homebuyers tend to overlook these necessities, but you can equip yourself with these tools, and it doesn't have to cost you a fortune. Our REALTORS® will help get you into the perfect home, but here's a starting guide to ensure you have the right tools to maintain the upkeep of your home.

Tools of the Trade to Keep Your Home in Order

Plumbers and other repairmen can cost you upwards of one hundred dollars each time you need to call them. While you may need a professional sometimes, you don't need to spend a lot of money to acquire common tools that will allow you to do the job yourself. However, you also shouldn't run directly to the discount tools section for cheaper options. A basic toolbox purchased at your local hardware store will have many of the basics for you to use. This includes pliers, screwdriver set, adjustable and open-ended wrenches, level, hammer, Allen wrench set, and tape measure among others. These tools alone can help you fix a leaky faucet, repair furniture, tighten loose screws in appliances, or simply hang pictures.

If you're out looking for Ann Arbor homes for sale, you have a wide range of options to choose from. Some of those options will be historic homes that come with plenty of charm and, in a lot of cases, may need a lot of work. Here's what you need to know about buying that historic home. 

Pros of buying a historic home

  • Historic homes are unique. 
    Older homes often have unique features that range from charming to downright odd, but one thing's for sure: You won't find them in a newer house. From intricate crown molding and hand-carved railings to antique fireplaces and quirky fixtures, historic homes are often packed with one-of-a-kind features. You're not likely to find them anywhere else.
