About The Service Guide

Homeownership doesn't come with a manual to help guide you through all the responsibilities you acquire once you've purchased a home. Getting good at navigating your way through them is typically learned as you go.


  • Think of The Service Guide as your personal home manual where you can get advice and answers to your home related inquiries encompassing more than 300 service categories. 
  • Plus learn and laugh with other relatable homeowners who have and are navigating similar waters you are! 
  • Lastly, connect to local RESIDENT EXPERT service providers for answers and solutions when you need help.


Created in 2004, The Service Guide has become one of the best and trusted resources consumers across the U.S. turn to first for reliable, helpful information that makes homeownership just that much easier!
