As COVID-19 and colder weather keeps us indoors,  many homeowners find that being stuck inside  creates a new-found interest in home improvement.

Pandemic safety concerns may have you considering a DIY approach to those projects, rather than having a handyman or remodeler inside your home.  Before you dive in, take a look at this video from Wayfair featuring  Chip Wade


It offers great insight on which projects are good for do-it-yourselfers vs. those best left to the pros. Chip covers bedroom closet organization, flooring and carpet, kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, window treatments, painting, wallpaper and more.  If repairs are on your mind, the DIY vs. Pro decision has financial implications.  VIP Financial Education’s Matthew Pillmore offers a video covering how to safeguard your hard-earned dollars and decide which is best for your bottom line.

If staring at four-walls motivates you to look for a new home instead of fixing up your current one, get in touch with  Vanguard Realty Associates.  We’ll help you find a place that’s move-in ready with no repairs necessary!
