6 Hidden Costs Of Home Ownership
- Furniture and Décor: This is especially true if you’re sizing up!
- Unexpected repairs: Disclosures and home warranties can help with this in the first year, but things may pop up after that.
- Basic Maintenance: From pest control to carpet cleaning, this can add up each year.
- Yard Maintenance: If you don’t already have them, you may need a mower, an edger, basic garden tools, and more – or money to hire a gardener.
- Utilities: Check local rates for water, electricity, gas, garbage, cable, and other services you use. As your agent, we can help you find these resources.
- Settling In: You may need to purchase things like: shower curtains or cleaning supplies during the first few weeks in the home. And probably more take-out dinners and delivery pizza than usual!
