MORRISTOWN, NJ (April 21, 2020) – As Americans face a softened economy and spend more time at home amid the COVID-19 crisis, homeowners across the country are using the time to be more productive around the house. A new national survey conducted online by Kelton on behalf of vipHomeLink, a home management app that helps homeowners organize, maintain and improve their homes, revealed that 48 percent of homeowners see the unprecedented pause to flatten the COVID-19 curve as an opportunity to get caught up on projects around the house. With millions of Americans confined to their homes, nearly half, or 45 percent, intend to use this self-isolation period to tackle things they’ve been putting off, from organizing closets and pantries to catching up on home maintenance work to sorting important documents and paperwork throughout their homes. vipHomeLink is offering a three-month app membership for free to help homeowners on their improvement journeys by keeping their home data all in one place, providing expert advice and recommendations and helping to track their projects – as with the challenging economic outlook this crisis has caused, the last thing homeowners need is a surprise home expense.

The survey of 569 American homeowners ages 18 and over shows that while the majority of homeowners, 63 percent, think it’s important to maintain their home regularly and stay on top of upkeep, 46 percent admit that their home needs some extra TLC, with a growing list of repairs and projects they would love to accomplish.

“With all the uncertainty relating to COVID-19, protecting and maintaining your home is more important than ever, and homeowners across the country are utilizing this time to give their home the TLC it may have been lacking due to the hustle and bustle of everyday life,” said vipHomeLink founder and CEO, Alfred Bentley III. “Proper home management is critical to ensure that homeowners are not hit with surprise expenses. Our app can help homeowners of all skill levels – from expert to novice – providing guidance to know what to do and when to do it all while saving members time and money. We know life gets busy, so our app sends push notifications nudging the user when it is time to check on or maintain certain items in the home, to avoid those surprising costs.”

The survey unearthed the following breakdown of where Americans plan to turn their home improvement attention:

  • 45% are using the time to tackle things they’ve been putting off
  • 27% plan to take care of home maintenance issues they’ve postponed in the past
  • 39% are organizing closets and pantries
  • 25% are sorting through and systemizing important paperwork regarding their home and the things inside
  • 11% are going all-in on a major project to turn their dreams into reality; more than 15 million homeowners have started a home renovation project such as redecorating a room or finishing a basement 

vipHomeLink is the perfect companion to help homeowners manage these projects. The intuitive app lets users build a profile of their home to store valuable documents, create a home inventory, keep track of renovation projects and receive helpful reminders to shape habits by empowering homeowners with the knowledge they need to accomplish these tasks. 

For those who are interested in getting on track with tasks at home but are unsure of where to begin, vipHomeLink identified some simple projects to get started with right away:
