Most times when people move into a new house, whether new construction or resale, I find they usually want some things done.

My most appreciated closing gift is some hours of handyman service to do whatever they want or need done. I pay my handyman for 2 or more hours of his time, depending on the price of the house and the new owners buy materials.

Buyers love it because they can make their new home more liveable almost immediately and get other projects they may have been thinking about done as well.

My handyman loves it because he almost always gets more work above the portion I pay for as well as a contact for future work.
