Who would we be if we weren’t that little white angel on your shoulder popping up with helpful reminders? Sure, we might be your biggest pain in the neck, but it’s all for your own good. So, for the win, here’s another friendly reminder to budget for home repairs! 57% of recent home buyers say they encountered unexpected home projects within the first 12 months of moving into their new home, according to a new study by HomeAdvisor’s True Cost Guide. This statistic is astounding! You think with all of the long lines and red tape prior to your home purchase, that there should be nothing left to chance. But if you do a little budgeting beforehand, you’ll thank us later.
