A Word About Budgeting and Billing
Because the HOMEfree® “concierge” concept is new to most homeowners, we are often asked about compensation.
HOMEfree® assesses a one-time fee to cover a Year One Project and Maintenance Plan and a Long-Range Maintenance Plan.
After this, HOMEfree® services are billed at an hourly rate, similar to many other professional services.
Outside materials and work performed by service providers (tradespeople) are charged to you through HOMEfree®. You receive one easy-to-understand invoice that summarizes all services and purchases.
Helping You Plan for Your Home’s Long-Term Worth
Fiscal professionals estimate that a home’s annual maintenance budget should fall between 1% – 3% of its value to maintain current worth—more if major home renovations or repairs are required.
Our yearly and long-term budgeting process will help you estimate and prioritize the appropriate maintenance investment for your home.
Clear, Surprise-Free Billing and Budget Reports
Instead of dealing with multiple bills from a myriad of companies, you’ll receive a single, organized HOMEfree®
invoice. It includes:
- Professional Hourly HOMEfree® Service Rates
HOMEfree® time is billed at a flat rate, similar to many other professional services.
- Summarized Outside Materials, Supplier Costs and Expenses
Outside materials and work performed by tradespeople (such as plumbers, repairmen, painters or landscapers) are overviewed in an easy-to-understand invoice.
- Managed Changes and Variances
HOMEfree® Specialists make sure you are immediately updated on additional scope or material changes that vary from plan. Any items outside authorized parameters are approved prior to proceeding.
- Ongoing Budget Reports
All costs are managed to budget per your approved maintenance plan and updated throughout the year.
Complete Home Documentation and Recordkeeping
HOMEfree® organizes and maintains your records including documentation of scheduled work, invoices, warranties, manuals, maintenance schedules and receipts.
