Managing Your Home Data Digitally

Monday, October 19th, 2015

Homeowners often struggle with managing the details about their home because they are generally disorganized or do not have a central system to track the data. It makes sense why this happens. We have real estate documents in one file cabinet, contacts of service providers in address books or on our phones, full drawers of receipts for items we purchased, photos of our homes in boxes, sticky notes on what task is next and who is going to tackle this task, and some homeowners do not have any of this information because they might be new at homeownership.

Managing your home digitally and in one place can solve many of these issues. If you had a digital account of your home and storage of all home related documents at your fingertips, you could actually remove a lot of the paper you have in your home to become more organized both digitally and physically. Additionally, understanding the details of one of your largest assets, can help make you, as homeowner, more aware and more informed about your home. Understanding what you own, how to take care of it and how to enhance it can help you maintain the value of your home.

Organizers can now help their clients become more digitally organized by using the most innovative tools to help them understand the contents within their home, the paper associated with their home and how to take action to maintain the value of their home. These services are opportunities to continue to support clients while also building out an organizers business to help continue with the overall business growth strategy.
