A home is one of the biggest investments a person can make so why not do everything possible to maintain, protect and increase the value of that investment.

HouseLogic, a new consumer Web site from the National Association of REALTORS®, gives homeowners the tools and information they need to make smart decisions to that end.

Wonder how much value a basement remodel brings to a home compared to renovating an attic bedroom? HouseLogic can provide the answers. The free Web site empowers homeowners with everything from advice on home improvement and maintenance projects to information about taxes, home financing, insurance and energy efficiency.

Even better, homeowners can customize HouseLogic to fit their needs. They can save information on projects they are interested in, set due dates for work, track their progress and take quizzes on what they’ve learned.

And homeowners will learn not only how to improve their homes but also how to add value to their community as a whole. HouseLogic offers tips for starting a community garden, building a playground or organizing a neighborhood watch program.

Check out www.houselogic.com and see how you can make your home and community a better place.

And HouseLogic isn’t just for consumers. The site offers REALTORS® a free source of ready-to-use content for their Web sites, blogs and newsletters through its REALTOR® Content Resource.
