If you recently became a homeowner for the first time: congratulations! The last two years have seen a record-high surge in people seeking their first homes, with first-time homebuyers making up more than a third (34%) of all homebuyers in the last 12 months, according to the National Association of Realtors. However, house hunting, down payments and closing costs are just the beginning of the journey.
Homes are complex systems that do not come with an owner’s manual. According to a recent survey from Thumbtack, the app downloaded by millions of homeowners, 68% of homeowners report feeling overwhelmed, confused or stressed about maintaining their homes (and this increases to 80% for millennial homeowners).
This is why Thumbtack is launching a new home care experience designed to build a long-term partnership with homeowners in the continuous care of their largest asset. It is the first technology to proactively care for the home – from moving in, to moving out, and all the moments in between.
