Living in a condo or a rental unit comes with one definite perk. You don’t have to make your own repairs!

Now that you have moved into your new home, it’s time to put on a new hat, that of “handyman.” For the big jobs, like roofing and rewiring, you’ll more than likely still rely on a professional. And unless you are truly versed in those specialties, that is what we’d recommend!

But there will be many small jobs that come up which you will be able to fix on your own. Really! Not only will it save you money, but you’ll experience a nice swelling of pride that you made whatever it was, work again.
