New Website from National Association of Realtors Offers Help for Homeowners

The National Association of Realtors announced the launching of its new consumer based website this week, HouseLogic.com, a free source of information and tools that can help you make smart and timely decisions about your home.

According to NAR’s press release, the free Web site helps homeowners plan and organize their home projects and provides timely articles and news; home improvement advice and how-to’s; and information about taxes, home finances and insurance.

“Unlike other homeownership Web sites, HouseLogic helps consumers view their home through a financial lens and make smart, informed home improvement investment decisions,” said NAR President Vicki Cox Golder. “Families can set goals for saving money on their home or increasing its value, and easily track the progress they are making on those goals.”
