Home ownership is one of the most important and exciting responsibilities a person can take on and though it comes with a load of work, it has even more benefits. Managing all of your home’s individual responsibilities no longer has to be so much of a challenge with all the available apps for homeowners.
Angi (formerly Angie’s List) is a website and app which allows members to research, hire, rate and review local service providers. You’ll find businesses and professionals specializing in hundreds of categories including interior and exterior home repair, lawn and garden and more. In addition to hiring professionals, Angi offers online resources including free expert advice in the site’s Solution Center. You can also watch videos to learn more about home improvement and DIY projects. The Pricing Guide is another tool available on the website and in the app. You can use it to see the average costs for particular types of projects.
Moved Moving is a lot of work and can take months to plan. There’s more to it than just packing up and moving furniture. Even if you have free time, planning a move can be hectic and stressful, and it requires lots of moving parts (pun intended). Moved gives you a platform to coordinate and plan all aspects of moving, from selling your home’s furniture to getting quotes on how much it will cost to hire movers. This is the home moving app that provides help with arranging everything from A to Z. It even connects you with savings opportunities and compares pricing on services.
EBTH Everything But The House (EBTH) promises “everythinguncommon.” That’s definitely true if you spend time perusing the“estate sale” items available in this online marketplace. This app is great for homeowners because it’s the one-stop shop for home decor. The way it works is that you get to name your price by bidding along with other customers. This app is the perfect place to sell your home items if you are downsizing or redecorating, but be careful. You may just be tempted to buy something new even if you are trying to downsize.
iScape This app guides you through the entire landscaping process, from the dream stage to execution. It provides instructions, planning materials, and list of tools to make your landscape project happen, including a visualization tool that allows you to plan your landscaping dreams virtually and then transfer them into an actualized plan.
