As we draw nearer to the end of the year, the topic of New Year’s resolutions is often brought up. It can be a daunting task to choose a resolution and stick to it, but with a little help, we think it’s definitely worth it… and the home is a great place to start.
When it comes to your home, some of the most beneficial changes we can make involve saving money—that’s a given. While doing so can make the home selling or buying process easier, it’s a big game-changer even if you’re planning on staying put for a while. Make it a point to start the new year off right by instilling money-saving practices into your routine. This might mean switching to energy efficient appliances or assessing and trimming down your home’s utility bill.
Another financially savvy practice you can start for the new year? Start making extra mortgage payments! It might not be always seem doable, but by setting aside extra funds when you’re able, you’ll be able to go through your mortgage more quickly and be able to pay it off sooner—and that’s always good news!
