New Homeowner Must Knows!
If you’ve recently purchased a new home in Augusta or are thinking about it, here are some great must-know tips for keeping your head (and your bank account) above water!
- Not everything is a NOW issue. Everyone moving into their new Augusta home wants that instant gratification of making it their own with new furniture, amenities and décor. Take your time. You’ve just made one of the biggest investments in your life, which is a great financial decision. Spending every dime on non-essential items is not. So, pick and choose wisely what NEEDS to be done as opposed to what you WANT to be done and schedule the want-to items out over time to allow for a financial cushion to rebuild.
- Fix it – don’t forget it! Before ensuring that everything looks perfect in your new home, make sure everything is working the way it should. Little maintenance repair needs, when overlooked, can turn into worst-case-scenarios relatively quickly. Not sure who to call? Call me, I’m happy to share the names of trusted contractors, handymen, painters, plumbers and more!
- Insure it! Life can throw us curveballs sometimes. Protect your family and your investment with sufficient homeowner’s insurance.
