If you are a new homeowner (or apartment dweller) it’s likely that you haven’t amassed a collection of tools, just yet. MSN Real Estate created a list of the 15 most basic tools that any homeowner should have. MSN also claims that you should be able to buy all these tools for under $200:

  • Toolbox
  • Hammer
  • Pry bar
  • Vise-grips
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Screwdrivers (mixed set)
  • Wire cutter/stripper
  • Tape measure (16 foot)
  • Electrical tester
  • Reversible drill with bit set
  • 1/2 inch steel chisel
  • Utility knife
  • Handsaw
  • 9-inch torpedo level
  • Safety glasses

What do you think? Do you recommend any tools for the beginner that didn’t make the list?
