Yes, it's true — new houses need maintenance too! Let's take a closer look at these myths and more.

    What to Expect During Your Home Assessment

    Posted by Michelle Galvez on Nov 14, 2019 6:23:00 AM

    One of the best things about your AAA House Manager Membership is that the benefits begin right away. Whether you decide to start by scheduling a Home Service Visit, Essential Seasonal Maintenance, Virtual Service Visit, or a Home Assessment, your first visit can be held as quickly as three days after becoming a Member.

    If you've already started creating a to-do list of items for us to tackle, but aren't sure how to prioritize it, a Home Assessment is a good place to start. It will be your House Manager's first opportunity to familiarize themselves with your home. After taking a closer look, they'll work with you on what items need to be taken care of right away. They will also put together your Home Health Report, which will identity other issues that may need to be taken care of in the future.

    AAA House Manager and Home Insurance: How They Work Together

    Posted by Sophie Bousset on Nov 5, 2019 2:11:22 PM

    Home insurance is important! If you've previously purchased a home, you know that the sale will not close unless the new homeowner provides proof of this insurance and with good reason. Home insurance, also known as homeowners insurance, is priceless when the unthinkable happens: your house burns down, a thief breaks in, or your child's friend breaks her arm running in the backyard. With that said, it does not cover all of the ills that can befall your biggest investment. Fortunately, preventive home maintenance can prevent a large portion of the remaining hazards. Let's take a closer look.
