New Year Resolutions for Your Home

  • December 29, 2015

You are probably making resolutions for yourself for the New Year. Why not make some for your home as well?
 
Pay down your mortgage – Maybe you got a bonus during the holiday season or have a raise coming your way when January arrives. Either way, consider putting more money towards your mortgage monthly to help pay it down faster. Talk to your trusted mortgage professional today for more information on paying your mortgage off early.
 
Fresh paint – Everything needs to be spruced up once in a while. Make it a goal to apply fresh paint to your home this year. There’s no need to overwhelm yourself and do it all in one weekend. Take a room each month to focus on to make the project more manageable.
 
Energy efficient appliances – Many people make it a goal to save more money in the New Year. Consider investing in energy efficient appliances to not only help your resolution but also to satisfy this home resolution! Newer appliances can help lower your energy bills and keep the environment green.
 
Plant a tree – Show your yard some care by planting a tree. This helps the environment and can invigorate some new ideas when it comes to your landscaping!
 
Start a “home fund” – Aim to create a “rainy day fund” solely for your home. In the event repairs need to be made urgently or just to have an account to turn to when improvements need to be made, a home fund can allow you to store little amounts of money away monthly that add up quickly.
 
It’s easy to forget about taking care of your home until something goes wrong. Making your home a priority will help keep it in peak condition as well as make it easier if the time ever comes should you want to sell it.
