People may hate on email newsletters but the monthly one I get from the guy we hired to do our home-buyer's inspection, which has seasonal maintenance and safety tips, is an outstanding product.
@levisan On that line, i have always thought a homeowner maintenance app that told you when to do certain things(clean the dryer vent, change oil in the mower, run a clean cycle on the washer...) would be something i could pay a couple bucks for...weed and feed the lawn, disinfect the garbage bin, etc. like a spouse fix-it list but generated automatically [no sarcasm]
@mwklein This is a good idea! Of course you could totally look up recommended timelines for things like that and then set reminders in a todo app, but having timelines already planned out for you would be very convenient.
I'd love a feature that also monitors your local weather and tells you if it would be wise to water the lawn or not.
The real estate agent I used is old fashioned. They send a glossy postcard each month with a topic like "football schedule", "nearby parks & recreation areas", and so on. Another agent (I did not use) sends postcards with recipes. I guess it's cheap advertising.
@mhjohnson Ha! I suppose both are good ways of keeping the customer reminded that they exist, just in case they need to move.
