Home ownership has long been considered a core principle in defining the American dream and undoubtedly the benefits are vast. However, just as indisputably those benefits come with added responsibilities, namely, maintenance. Once upon a time a leaky faucet repair was only a call to the landlord away but now that responsibility falls to you. Unless you want to have a handy man on your speed dial there are few basic things every home owner should know that will save time and money. Lucky for us we have YouTube which can make a handy man out of just about anybody! These videos will walk you through drywall repair, leaky faucets/toilets, how to unstick a window, among other things to make you as handy as a button on a shirt!
