When you own a home, a lot can go wrong. And it’s important to prepare for that financially.
The start of a new year is a good time to establish different goals. And one of yours may be to keep your home in great shape. To that end, here are some homeowner resolutions to put on your list for 2024.
1. Conduct a Home Assessment
Your home has a lot of different facets. A good way to organize yourself for 2024 and know which items need to be addressed first is to do a thorough home assessment.
