We all have that list of home-improvement projects that only seems to get longer with time. Need a wall painted, a leaky gutter fixed, or an extra bedroom for a growing family, but don’t where to start? Head to HomeAdvisor.

Like Craigslist without the scammers, HomeAdvisor is an online marketplace for homeowners to find prescreened home professionals, from plumbers to house cleaners. The site’s Instant Booking technology let’s you schedule more than 500 home tasks on-demand — no playing phone tag. And with True Cost Guide, you’ll get a better idea what it should cost, based on what other homeowners are paying locally and nationwide. All of HomeAdvisor’s resources are free for homeowners, with no membership or fees required, either online or on the free HomeAdvisor Android or iOS app.

To get you started with your next project, HomeAdvisor is giving two lucky DT readers a $500 Visa gift card for any project you can dream up. If you need some help coming up with some ideas, check out this list of home projects that can be done for under $500.

Readers in New York City can learn more about HomeAdvisor at the getgeeked conference on Thursday, Oct. 15 at The Brooklyn Expo Center from 7:30 – 10 p.m. Digital Trends is proud to partner with the gadget show for the second year in a row. More than 45 companies will exhibit there, from huge names like HP and Lenovo to exciting startups. To sweeten the pot, you can also look forward to more than $10,000 in gear up for grabs through various contests, a discounted social shopping zone, and goodie bags for the first 1,000 attendees. You can register for free here.
