The sale is just the beginning. Whether it’s your first house, an upgrade, or a downsize, purchasing a new home is exciting and full of things to do. From the fun of decorating your home to maintaining it, at Barnett Homes, we want to stick with you and provide helpful resources. Just like our homes are built to last, so are the relationships we make with our buyers. Look for new home maintenance and decor tips from us here and on social media.
Before any sale closes, we do 2 walk-throughs with our buyer. One is cosmetic, making note of any final touch-ups that need to be made. The second is our final walk-through, where we make sure the home is 100% ready for our buyer.
But our relationship doesn’t end there. In addition to leaving the new homebuyer with a manual on how to care for their new home, we also offer a complimentary session with a specialist from our construction team on how to use all the unique features of their home.
And it doesn’t end there. As a part of our 1-year Builder’s warranty, we walk through the home again after 90 days and just prior to the end of the year. Beyond the scheduled walk-throughs, we are always available to quickly take care of any warranty items or answer any questions.
Additionally, with our in-house architect and design teams, if buyers want to add extra features such as wood decks or stone patios, we’re here to help navigate the world of permit processes, zoning requirements, and vendor selection.
Throughout your home buying and renovating journey, Barnett Homes is here for you.
Some features found in high end homes require special care. Here are some tips for a few of them:
Be sure all windows and doors stay closed while using your radiant heating system to ensure a tight environment to trap the heat. Also, while turning your heat down at night may save energy, turning it down too low will cause the system to have to work harder in the morning.
On snowy days, instead of salting your limestone steps, use Calcium Magnesium Acetate (CMA) so you don’t damage them.
To clean your quartz countertops, use a mild dish detergent and a soft cloth.
