3 Power Tools Every New Homeowner Should Own

Keeping your home in tip-top shape is the best way to care for your most valuable asset. To do the job right, you may need to call upon the help of a few power tools every now and again. But with the shelves at your local hardware store loaded with every power tool you can think of, it can be overwhelming for new homeowners to know exactly which tools they really need.

According to Zillow, you can get away with owning just three power tools for most of the jobs you’ll tackle during the time you own your home.

We’ve touched on all three briefly below, but read the entire article here to learn more about how to use these tools and what to look for when shopping for them.

  1. Cordless Drill–If you can only afford to add one tool to your collection now, start with the cordless drill. Dubbed the “workhorse of the homeowner’s toolbox” this drill will come in handy all throughout the house.
  2. Circular Saw—When you need to make straight cuts in wood quickly for a DIY project, this will be your go-to tool.
  3. Electric Oscillating Multi-Tool—If you need to remove caulking, sand small items, or get into a tight, awkward space of your home with a power tool, this piece gives you the flexibility to do exactly that.

With these three tools in hand (and some guidance from your favorite DIY YouTube channel) you can feel confident that you can meet the basic repair needs to keep your home looking good.
