One of the most overlooked areas of ongoing expense for the homeowner is maintenance. Its importance cannot be over emphasized. A well maintained home will always sell much faster than one in need of repairs. Additionally, your ongoing investment in caring for your home will provide you with more enjoyment of the property while you live in it and a greater return when you decide to sell. Homeowners should religiously budget one to two percent of their homes value for maintenance and repair every year. You might consider opening a special savings account so that you can budget and save an equal amount each month. It will be much easier to tackle that re-shingling job if you’ve prepared for it in advance.
