Just Because You Can Climb A Ladder Does Not Mean You Should Go On The Roof!

As a real estate agent I have witnessed lots of proof that when some become a “do it yourself” out of control machine the results are less than stellar.

So for new (and existing homeowners) I give these tidbits of DIY advice you may not find on HGTV!
  • Just because you can turn on a light switch does not mean you are an electrician.
  • Just because you replaced the garbage disposal does not mean you can plumb a bathroom remodel.
  • Just because you can pull up the old carpet and haul it out to the street does not mean you can measure and install the new carpet.
  • Just because you can climb a ladder and get on the roof does not mean you should try repairing that leak.
My advice to homeowners – know your limitations. 

Besides the potential personal injury, problems can arise when you go to sell that house or condo.  Hire a reputable contractor….and real estate agent when you are ready to place that Viera, Suntree or Rockledge house or condo on the market!

If you are considering selling your Viera or Suntree Florida home, call me at 321-693-3850 to discuss how I can assist in your effort.  If you prefer, email me. Of course you are under no obligation - so what is the risk?
