The Beginning

Hi.  Welcome to Overlook Cottage.  Come on in, make yourself comfortable and let’s chat.

Taking care of your home is not an easy task. Our goal at Overlook Cottage is to keep you mindful of all matters regarding your home. Unlike the Flylady who helps you eliminate C.H.A.O.S. by introducing routines to keep your house clean, Overlook Cottage wants to help you maintain a portfolio of the inner and outer workings of your home and property. 

The Palace Portfolio will enable you to keep track of maintenance and repair schedules of different household equipment, appliances, and auto care, to understand your property boundaries and zoning regulations, identify water shutoffs, septic tank location and pumping schedule, and maintain your pool, deck and patio. These are just a few of the many items we need to keep track of as house managers. We believe this is not only a great tool for managing your home but also a great selling feature to pass on to the next homeowner.

 

Along with our blogs, we have designed downloadable editable worksheets for you to include in your Palace Portfolio. The worksheets can be printed or saved as individual documents, or into an electronic notebook for ease of use. A printed version sitting on the counter during an open house event will enable prospective buyers an opportunity to see how well maintained your home is.

Buying a home is an expensive undertaking.  Buying the right home is a blessing.  There are many details you overlook when house hunting.  Please read Buying the Right Home to help you make the decision that is best for you and your family when purchasing your first home.

Come on in and take a look around.  We hope you like what you see and come back often.
