I recently read a column in the Jan/Feb 2014 Florida Realtors magazine about a new app for homeowners that I that really intrigued me.
The app is HomeZada and today I finally went into to look at the website and signed up for free membership so I see what it really had to offer.
HomeZada is completely online and offers software to help you organize and manage your home.
They offer mobile apps for both iOS and Android and have hundreds of wonderful home improvement projects to get your creative minds going for your own special project.
There are two types of memberships for HomeZada: Free and Premium which costs $5.95 per month.
Home Project Estimator
The one thing I wanted to try was the home project estimator but I quickly found it was only available with the premium membership.
This feature is designed to help the homeowner determine the estimated costs and supplies needed for a project, comparison shop, and then allow them to track the budget as the project progresses.
I did find that when I clicked on one of the many options under “create projects” they will give you a high, moderate, and low estimate as well as a description and specifics followed by a “how to” type video.
You will be amazed at the variety of projects there are to review from upgrading appliances or furnishings to a new roof or a swimming pool.
I really enjoyed looking at the various projects as well as the inspirational projects for awesome ideas.
Keep Tabs On Your Home Inventory
You can also put in lots of information concerning your own property including uploading pictures, tracking your possessions and upload important home documents to help you in tracking your home improvement receipts.
If you get the premium version there are many other options to assist you in tracking your homes values and costs. For instance, with premium you get:
- Automated Maintenance Schedule
- Property Calendar and To Do Lists
- Alerts, Reminders & Calendar Integration
- Project Templates & Budgets and Costs
- Online & Offline Shopping Comparison
- Photos, Documents and Inventory Integration
- Dashboards for Property Finances
- Home Values and Household Expenses
- Includes All Features from Essentials
- Manage Vacation, Rental or Family Properties
I can’t help but think of how this tool can help home owners and prospects with estimating improvement costs and then track the entire project.
This is an awesome way to save money when doing projects to get your home on the market, or after you have recently purchased and needs some upgrades. (Even on rentals properties!)
So if you love to take on home improvement projects this website and the mobile app from HomeZada will certainly benefit you! Enjoy and good luck on that next project!!!
