As a homeowner, it is important to complete preventative home maintenance on a regular schedule. Home maintenance is necessary because it ensures potential problems are identified before they become costly repairs. Not every issue will be caught ahead of time, here are a few common examples of home maintenance issues that could be problematic.

The Leaking Roof

One of the most common home maintenance issues is a roof that starts to leak. A leaking roof can be costly because, if the leak becomes a steady flow, you may need to replace personal property in addition to fixing the overarching issue. It is critical to perform a home inspection to make sure the roof is in a state of good repair during the buying process. While living in your home, the roof should be inspected regularly to look for problems with shingles, tiles and gutters. This ensures that the roof can withstand the routine wear and tear of adverse weather.

A Ruptured Pipe

Ruptured pipes are often a source of home plumbing and maintenance issues. Pipes tend to rupture during the winter when the temperature is especially cold. Sometimes, water and ice expand upon freezing to the point that the pipe breaks. Then, when the water is turned on, it flows out of the pipe and floods the house. To prevent this from happening, turn the ambient temperature up slightly even when you aren't at home. This will often prevent the water from freezing. Additionally, allowing the faucet to drip during particularly chilly nights keeps the water flowing, making it is less likely to freeze in the pipes.

A Broken HVAC Unit

Most homeowners dread having to replace the HVAC unit; however, routine maintenance will ensure you get as much use out of your HVAC unit as possible. If you hear rattling in the HVAC unit, or when their heat starts to disappear, this is a bad sign. To ensure HVAC units last as long as possible, make sure to replace the filters on time. This will go a long way toward making them last.

Not Sticking to Home Maintenance Schedules

Lastly, the biggest problem many homeowners have with home maintenance is that they simply don't do it. There is a common saying that you shouldn't fix what isn't broken but avoiding regular home maintenance will likely lead to larger repair bills down the road. Follow the advice of the maintenance schedule and make sure the home is taken care of.

If you intend to buy or sell a house, it frequently pays to hire a real estate agent, and for good reason.

A real estate agent can offer expert insights into the housing market. Plus, he or she can respond to any concerns or questions that you may have as you proceed along the homebuying or home selling journey.

When it comes to hiring a real estate agent, however, it is important to note that no two real estate agents are exactly alike. In fact, there are several factors that differentiate an ordinary real estate agent from an outstanding one, and these include:

1. Industry Experience

Regardless of whether you plan to buy or sell a house, you should definitely spend some time evaluating a real estate agent's industry experience. That way, you can find out how long a real estate agent has been working in the industry and choose one who knows how to overcome potential homebuying and home selling hurdles.

Ideally, you should employ a real estate agent who possesses many years of industry experience. This housing market professional likely understands the ins and outs of buying and selling houses and can help you get the best possible results.

2. Communication Skills

The right real estate agent will be a great communicator. As such, this housing market professional will be able to keep you informed at each stage of the homebuying or home selling process.

To learn about a real estate agent's communication skills, it often is a great idea to meet with a real estate agent and interview this individual. During a face-to-face interview, you can get a better idea about what a real estate agent is all about and ensure you feel comfortable working with him or her.

In addition, a real estate agent should have no trouble communicating with you in good times and bad. He or she will be prepared to provide honest, unbiased feedback, and by doing so, help you make your homebuying or home selling dreams come true.

3. Client Feedback

Reach out to a real estate agent's past clients before you hire this housing market professional. With client feedback at your disposal, you can learn what it's like to work with a real estate agent.

A real estate agent usually will be happy to provide you with client referrals. Then, you can contact an agent's past clients and learn about their homebuying or home selling experiences.

Lastly, if you're uncertain about whether a real estate agent is right for you, it sometimes is valuable to find out how this housing market professional will approach the homebuying or home selling process. Explaining your goals and learning how a real estate agent will help you accomplish these aspirations can make it easy for you to find the right agent, at the right time, every time.

Start your search for a real estate agent today, and you can move one step closer to buying or selling a home.
