Congratulations! You’re now the owner of a new (or new to you) home! Of course, you realize that your expenses have only just begun, even though you may have already bought your home, right?
I’m talking about home maintenance.
When putting together your budget as a new homeowner, remember to include the annual cost of this very important element of being a homeowner.
Wondering what’s included in yearly home upkeep?
You probably already have a list of home maintenance chores, such as changing the furnace filter seasonally, turning off the water before winter, cleaning the gutters, etc.
Although this is a good beginning, there are some tasks that homeowners frequently overlook or are unaware of.
Here are a few crucial home maintenance tasks that may not be on your to-do list but that, if neglected, could cost you a fortune or, worse still, cause you a great deal of stress.
Nowadays, because of global warming, it’s normal for temperatures to oscillate between extremes of hot and cold. Thus, air conditioning units (ACs) have become increasingly important for favorable living conditions. Thankfully, due to technological advancements, these AC systems have become more abundant and affordable.
Your first home.
You put so much into getting here. Now, you can paint every room in the house, let your dog lounge on the sofa and hang anything you want on your front door, and nobody can say anything about it (except your family!)
But as with many things in life, you’ve got to take the bad with the good.
Consumers have a love hate relationship with push notifications they receive from the apps they install on their mobile phones. Some people really appreciate them if they are informative, timely, and useful. Others hate them because they are not relevant. But with most apps, you the user don’t control what push notifications get sent to you.
