Homeownership certainly has its benefits, especially in terms of a financial investment. And since your home is likely your most significant investment, it’s wise to practice routine maintenance to protect it.

I recently came across an article from This Old House that highlights 47 skills to help you survive home ownership I thought was worth sharing. It covers some great basics – ranging from how to fix a leaky faucet to detecting termites and hard wiring a light fixture.

When you have a few minutes, check it out and brush up on your skills, or bookmark it so it’s handy next time you have a minor home emergency!
