Fall is just around the corner! Here’s an insider view of the top 10 projects homeowners are requesting this year to maintain and spruce up their homes – plus, how you can stand out from the competition.

More time at home means additional stress on vital appliances. As leads come in, stay organized to maximize your efficiency.
3. Electrical Switches, Outlets & Fixtures
This fall, homeowners are calling on licensed electricians and handymen to help keep the lights on. Post before-and-after videos or photos on your social media page to show off your expertise.

If you find yourself with large jobs or emergencies, save time on small or diagnostic jobs with HomeAdvisor’s in-app video feature.
5. Service or Repair Central A/C
As homeowners schedule seasonal updates or replacements for their A/C units, be sure to let clients know about any end-of-summer deals you’re offering.
