San Diego-based ihomebutler, an online service that interactively assists homeowners with individual maintenance management, announced the official launch of its online platform to homeowners across the nation. After a soft launch last November, the company has since been working with residential property owners, housing industry professionals and service providers to build its database of both users and verified businesses for home services.

Once a homeowner inputs their residential property’s information into the system, the ihomebutler application sends automated quarterly reminders to suggest maintenance checks or the need for professional service. 

“We’ve used our own experience in the handling, purchasing, selling and financing of residential properties to identify the needs of today’s homeowner,” said CEO Bruce Ives. “Through automated notifications, our goal is to help our members prevent accidents and costly repairs attributed to home issues that could have been avoided with a timely check or service.”

Once a homeowner receives the quarterly notification email, he or she has the option to “Get a Bid” from licensed and bonded service providers in the respective area. Areas of specialty include plumbing, air duct cleaning, roofing, carpenters, cleaning services, electricians and landscapers.

ihomebutler’s platform also allows real estate and insurance brokers to enter in their client’s home information to send out the reminders on a quarterly basis, giving brokers a way to stay in contact with clients and positioning them as a helpful resource. 

ihomebutler is offering users a free annual membership, regularly priced at $149/year, for a limited time. 

 “We’ve hit the ground running in Southern California over the past few months and will continue to expand our focus to new markets, offering our innovative service to homeowners across the nation,” said Ives.
