Very often we are asked “how much is it?” And the next question is usually “what does that include,” another good question. We want to answer both of these questions here and eliminate any mystery surrounding Your Home Concierge. It is not just money spent, but an investment and peace of mind for you and your family. Let’s talk about value and then let’s talk real numbers.
The value of peace of mind
Its not a gimmick and its not a marketing ploy. The value and the benefit of the services Your Home Concierge provides can be immeasurable. Spending more time with your family, reducing the stress of dealing with home maintenance and guarding against costly repairs are all things that we just can’t put a price on. Keep this in mind as you read on.
The real deal on home repairs
By any account home maintenance and repairs are going to cost you one way or another. The standard maintenance budget (let’s call this the “rule-of-thumb” number) should cost you between 1-3% of your home’s value each year. If you have gone a whole year without spending this on home maintenance you’re very lucky but rest assured that you can’t continue to spend nothing on maintenance. Putting this amount of money aside can’t guarantee you won’t have an emergency repair, but it will give you some insurance. Think of your rule-of-thumb number and we will compare that to some other real numbers soon.
The most common repairs
The most common repairs faced by homeowners include major system failures (electrical, plumbing/sewer) as well as mold growth. In a majority of cases, these could be easily found and prevented if the homeowner just knew what to look for. We can tell you from first-hand experience that it is easier to spend the money on maintenance. If we had known about a regular service, we could have saved ourselves nearly $10,000. If you’re still doing the math, that’s the majority of an average home’s rule-of-thumb number and we’ve only tackled one thing. That’s bad math.
Here’s where the math comes in handy
The average home price in Denver is around $500,000. The rule-of-thumb number for this home is around $10,000 – no small change. For about one-fifth of that you could hire Your Home Concierge to monitor and protect your home. And our most basic package (The Essential Package) is nearly one-tenth of the rule-of thumb number. Think about that. Then think about the value this service could bring to your family. By all accounts, a good deal. And, as promised, here are some real numbers:
Your Home Concierge’s most basic package is just $120* annually. Yes, you read that correctly $120. And our most comprehensive package retails for $1500** and this includes a free consultation and home evaluation. Now think of your home’s rule-of-thumb number. It is likely more than Your Home Concierge’s services. Chances are you have enough rule-of-thumb money to hire Your Home Concierge and still have some leftover in case something does happen. Its like having double the insurance. We are passionate and committed to offering these services at affordable prices.
And now that we’ve answered “how much” you are likely asking yourself “what does that include.” Well, we’d love to tell you more. Check out the Services page of our website or reach out to learn more.
