Good financial planning doesn't apply only to your retirement; it applies to your home too! Many people merely wait until an emergency happens to make repairs and find each situation more stressful and expensive than necessary.
This time of year, many people receive a refund from their tax return. We often think of using that refund to pay bills, buy something fun, or go on vacation. All these plans are good, but consider putting some of it into an account specifically for your home.
Having money put away for emergencies or saving for remodling or upgrades to your home that could improve its value means that you are ready for whatever comes your way. Being prepared financially, means less stress & less hassle when surprises happen. Contact me to find out more about planning for your home's financial needs.
