HomeZada - The Zen of Home Maintenance

By Anita Cooper | June 27, 2012


You know you need to do it. Maybe you've even started one, but you got sidetracked, or you spilled coffee on it and need to do it all over again...whatever your reasons for not having an inventory of your home's contents, that reason has now been eliminated. Permanently!

HomeZada is an online home organization and management tool that will help you tie up all of the loose ends of your “home” life. Key areas that HomeZada will help you organize include creating an online inventory of your “stuff”, establishing a list of the home maintenance tasks that need to be accomplished and managing home improvement projects both current and future.

This fantastic cloud based resource was created out of personal need. The developers desired to create a program which was in the cloud, was centrally located with seriously protected servers, and which allowed access 24/7 to everything about your home. HomeZada meets that criteria in spades.

In A Time of Disaster

Fire, burglary, flood – whatever may befall you as a homeowner, having all of your information at your fingertips, which you can quickly and easily provide to your insurance agent, emergency personnel or others offers a strong sense of security, giving you one less thing to worry about.

In A Time of Transition

Leveraging your home inventory, both those assets which will stay with the house if you ever sell, and those which require maintenance, is a smart way to handle your finances. For example, providing your realtor with a detailed list of what home maintenance has been done to the home during your time of ownership is a great selling point that he or she can leverage with buyers.

Home Improvement

As a homeowner, especially during these rough financial times, beginning (and completing) a home improvement project is a smart way to add value to your home, but it can be a bit dicey. Often, projects will run way over budget and/or over time – adding even more stress to your already stressful life.

Keeping track of your income and budgets on a home improvement project can be time consuming, and when snags come up along the way it can be easy to get frustrated as you lose sight of the bigger picture.

HomeZada can help. Thinking of a kitchen remodel? HomeZada's powerful tool for home improvement projects can help you understand exactly what you need to do in terms of budgeting and process. In fact, residential and re-modeling contractors love the fact that HomeZada helps them discuss projects with their clients as it introduces all of the components needed in a kitchen remodel, bathroom remodel, etc.

With HomeZada you will get an idea of what the costs will be before pounding the first nail. You can even do some comparison shopping online right from the program and create a wish list of what you want for your home.

Home Organization

No, it can't do your chores for you, but HomeZada can help you get them done. You can assign different family members tasks which they can access via their computer or their smartphones, making it easy to keep everyone on track.

You can enter all of the information you have scattered across the house – home inventory, contact information for service providers, maintenance tasks, etc and put them in HomeZada, where you and everyone you designate will have access to them. You can even upload pictures of your inventory items, which could potentially speed up an insurance claim!

One of the key elements that highlights HomeZada's effectiveness is the news and alerts. Depending upon your needs, it's possible to send yourself reminders of tasks that need to be accomplished. When you receive a notice you can choose to mark it completed, re-assign it or delete it – giving you the ultimate in flexibility and ease of use.

The system allows you to alert yourself when you see fit, and then it will remind you until you take action on the task. Whether that action is to tell the system you've accomplished it, you'll do it later, or you changed your mind, you don't want to do it. You can log the date it was completed, and it will manage the data associated with that task in terms of who actually did the work – if you outsourced the task and it cost you something, you can track your true home maintenance costs.

Another example of an alert would be a reminder that you didn't attach a photo to an inventory item. The system will alert you and say that you need a photo (if you choose to want it). The notice will show up on your news page, helping you stay on top of all that you need to do.

One of the most exciting results you'll see when you enter all of this information - your inventory, maintenance, and home improvement projects – is smart data. So, for example if you've chosen to enter dollar amounts for your inventory, you'll clearly understand what you've really spent and the value of your property and the contents in it, which will help you to ensure that you're properly insured.

As a busy homeowner, HomeZada offers an easy way to stay on top of your home organization and maintenance tasks. Its ease of use and serious smart data will change the way you look at your home. Why not take it for a spin today? Did I mention it was free? Yeah, good reason to act now!
