Funding Your Fix-ups

To help ensure that home repairs don’t cause you to build up debt or tap into cash reserved for other purposes, save up funds specifically for the cause. Many experts suggest setting aside from 1 to 4 percent of your home’s value each year. You won’t use it all every year, but some years you may need every penny. The older your home, the more you’re likely to need. But your savvy will pay off with a home that looks, and functions, like a charm!
