Have their HVAC and especially dryer vent ducts cleaned regularly. The dryer vents annually. 100,000 house fires annually start in clogged dryer vents.

Just one thing??? Pay property taxes and insurance, change smoke detector batteries, change filters, blow out sprinkler systems in the fall, clean out gutters end of fall, file homeowner exemption before April 15th first year of ownership as primary residence, check crawl space at least once a year....is this the kind of thing you are asking for?

Sounds like a cool program. -Kasey

Nat - Changing HVAC filters, keeping dryer vent cleaned, and changing batteries in their smoke detectors are all good ideas.

Charleston SC, a water-centric city.

#1. Allow subscribing agents two free text lines to add specific notifications. Example, as mentioned before, File for Homestead exemption. It a one time thing, but overlooking means wasted dollars.

#2. Restrictions: Here in coastal Florida, fertilizing lawns is prohibited during the rainy season, June to December. So, owner should be reminded to weed, seed and feed, between Feb and June.

#3. Annual security checkup: Inspect entry points, windows and cameras. Verify security updates on electronics. Have all electronics connected to a power strip controlled by a wall switch. When not in use, shut the power off. They can not spy on you through your SAMSUNG Smart TV is the power is removed.

#3. Pass it forward: remind the owner the fabric of society is compassionate touches of those in need.

Then all that regular stuff like dryer vents and smoke detectors.

Love the idea, Nat Wallen!  Absolutely servicing of the HVAC and cleaning the dryer vents, as Candice A. Donofrio mentioned.  Being in NC & SC, I also recommend obtaining &/or maintaining a termite bond.

Interesting.  I guess paying property taxes, insurances would be important.  Regional issues like earthquake insurance would also be good.  No radon out here to worry about, smoke detectors and CO detectors are supposed to have 10 year non-changeable batteries now, so that's not an issue.

I would like to see a place that you can add in something specific to that home, such as turning on and off an irrigation system. I just had a closing where they had a unique water filtration system fr their well that requires by monthly cleaning/replacing of fiters and adding salt etc.
