You’ve found the perfect house, secured a great rate on a mortgage, and hired movers to schlep your belongings. Now the real work begins. Owning a home means changing furnace filters, mowing lawns, and washing floors from time to time. When all those tasks seem overwhelming, BrightNest is there to help.
BrightNest is a tool you can use to manage the maintenance and cleaning of your home. Rather than jotting down to-do lists, emergency service contact numbers, and annual maintenance schedules in a three-ring binder, you can use BrightNest to keep your home healthy and safe. Just create an account – making sure to answer some basic questions about your home’s size and features – and BrightNest will provide you with a customized list of “Must Do” projects. From the dashboard page, you’ll also find links to areas of the site where you can store owner’s manuals and paint color information, add your own projects, and assign DIY tasks to your spouse or partner. BrightNest automatically adds all the tasks you need to do to your to-do list, and it tracks everything you’ve done under the “Home History” section.
In addition to providing you with a list of “Must Do” and “Good to Do” tasks, BrightNest also offers a library of tips and advice for maintaining virtually every area of your home. When you come across a particular piece of advice that you’d like to try out, you can add it to your “To Do” list, read related items, or share the information with friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.
