You just purchased the home of your dreams. Now what?
Preparing for home maintenance issues that may arise in the future is a smart next step.
Freddie Mac shares the following tips for preparing for home maintenance issues:
- Set aside time and money. You will need money for regular maintenance upkeep such as lawn care.
- Plan ahead for major purchases and home improvements. If you know parts of your home will require replacement in a few years, start saving money for those items now.
- Take periodic inventory of your home’s appliances, roof, decks, etc. Become familiar with the length of warranties and manufacturer’s recommendations for replacement.
- Ensure your insurance is active and current. In the case of serious damage or a disaster, you will have the protection you need if you ensure your insurance is adequate.
