MARYVILLE, Tenn., Nov. 15, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Inc., a Berkshire Hathaway company, knows that the most fulfilling part of homeownership happens after the mortgage process has been completed. That's why the company has published home maintenance tips to assist home buyers in the care of their new home.
Routine maintenance is necessary to maximize a home's value and prevent any future costly damages. Some homeowners, particularly first-time buyers, may need some guidance when first attempting home care techniques. Vanderbilt Mortgage published the video series on its website as an educational resource that provides these significant, yet simple demonstrations and ideas. "Maintenance is an important part of homeownership," Eric Hamilton, president of Vanderbilt Mortgage and Finance, Inc., said. "If you're a first-time homeowner, there are some aspects of upkeep you may not even have realized needed to be done." The videos include tips on: lighting, smoke detector maintenance, carpet cleaning methods and more. For instance, one video provides a step by step demonstration on how to pressure wash the outside of a home. "At Vanderbilt Mortgage, we want to not only help during the home-buying journey, but also after homeownership," Hamilton said. "These videos are tools to help families maintain their new home they have dreamed of for years."
