Emergency Services and Providers For Your Home

Whether you are a veteran who has purchased their first home, or you’re a pro and have bought and sold multiple homes in your lifetime, knowing who to call when things go wrong is a really good idea. When you were in the military your CO always made sure you knew a fall back point and had a contingency plan in place. Having a home with various mechanical systems should be no different. This is especially true if you are deployed and have family at home. You want to make sure they know how to handle things while you are in the field.

To get started, asking around to get referrals for service providers is a smart move. Speak to some of them, interview them, or even use them to do a small job you haven’t gotten to yet, so you can assess whether they are “your guy” for certain repairs. For example, if your washing machine ?supply hose explodes in the middle of the night you better make sure you can find an emergency plumber who works 24 hours a day to help you.

Make sure you don’t just call any company you find either. Make sure they are close to you so if you need a 24 hour emergency plumber in Miami, you aren’t calling plumbers who are in The Keys just because they advertise in your area. Make sure you ask them the approximate call and arrival times for middle of the night repairs while you are interviewing them. You also want to find out if they charge extra for after hour repairs.

Even though we mentioned plumbers, the same rules apply for local electricians, emergency roofers, emergency ac repair companies, and the like. The bottom line is, you need reliable vendors that can get to your home ASAP if there is an emergency situation. You also want to make sure they are reputable and available when you need them. Take a little time and plan this out for your own peace of mind and that of your family if you are deployed. Good luck!

 

Wounded Vets Deserve Homes Too

They served our country and laid their lives on the line. We enjoy our freedoms because of their sacrifice. Our families are safe and children know what it means to live in a free country. We should be thankful, grateful, and most of us are. However our current system is not honoring these brave men and women for their dedication. They undermine the very values they fought hard to protect. Now when it comes to buying a home, many of these vets are left out in the cold.

We realize that home ownership is a privilege that not everyone can have. We also know that includes some vets as well. We realize this, but also believe that is should be readily available to those who can. That having a home is the least of what these brave men and women deserve. Having a home to enjoy with their family and grow old in (whether large or small) is the least our troops should expect when they come home. Help us to make that so.

When it comes to buying or selling a home we at TricountyVeterans.org want to serve those who serve. We have a network of real estate professionals (some who offer commission discounts to vets) that we team up with to help them make their move. We have home inspectors, Realtors, title companies, and lenders on our team who also do their best to give back to those who have given so much.

For example, if you are in the South FL market looking for a home and need help choosing a good Bradenton, FL real estate agents?(if that’s the city you plan to move to) we will look for someone who understands VA loans and also make sure you have a reputable lender that will assist you as well. We will also make sure the lender works in the Bradenton, FL?area too in this example, so they understand the property tax and insurance rates for the area.

Selling a home can be a difficult process, especially for the families of a wounded vet. We make sure the professional Realtors in our network do their best marketing the home to get top dollar. We also make sure the work their best to negotiate the best price and terms when purchasing a property.

We can’t promise the real estate professionals in our network can get a particular home, or price of a home, but we can speak for their dedication to helping vets make the dream of home ownership or sale of a home as painless and enjoyable as possible while getting them the best results.

Allow us to help a vet that you know. Contact us and we will reach out to them
