Believe it or not, it’s almost a month into the new year. How are your new year resolutions coming along? Maybe you’ve set some personal goals to achieve, identified some bad habits to overcome, or contemplated some new habits to form. What you probably haven’t done, is consider making resolutions when it comes to your home: reorganizing, cleaning, decluttering, repairing, maintaining and upgrading. Well, Corken + Company is here to help with some insight from REcolorado home blog.
Here are five ways you can take advantage of a fresh start as a homeowner in the new year.
1. Be Economic
Saving money is often at the top of most resolution lists and being financially responsible is an important part of homeownership. Having a hefty savings makes necessary maintenance and repair possible. It also allows for upgrades and renovations in the future that not only improve your own enjoyment and satisfaction with your home but also contribute to its more rapid appreciation.
