The Importance of Maintenance and Upkeep of Your Home

One of the most valuable assets that you own or will own one day is your home. However, with our hectic lifestyle, it is easy to overlook the maintenance and upkeep of your home. As a homeowner, you are expected to spend anywhere between 1% - 4% of your home’s value on maintenance and upkeep of your home yearly.

 

There are a number of benefits to performing regular maintenance and upkeep of your home to avoid potential disastrous situations.

 

1. Money & Headaches

Regular maintenance can avoid something breaking down later on which most probably will incur even more costs. Take for example, if you do not perform periodic maintenance of your heating and cooling system, eventually it will break down and replacing it is not cheap!

 

2. Time, Time, Time

 Not just cost, unexpected breakdowns usually take more time to be fixed. You may be saving a few hours here and there by foregoing the regular maintenance and upkeep of your home but once it catches up with you, it can lead to more time to be spent fixing the problem and a boatload of frustration.

 

3. Value of Your Home

 Your home value is dependent on the current condition of the home. You may think that you are not planning to sell your home at this point in time but there will always be a possibility that you might change your mind. A well maintained home will attract buyers who knows that costly repairs in the future are less likely to happen.

 

4. Hazardous Conditions

 A neglected home can lead to a fire hazard, electrical hazard, as well as a health hazard. A well maintained home can give you and your family a peace of mind by reducing the risk of unexpected home problems and emergencies.

 

Have you been neglecting the maintenance and upkeep of your home? We at Revival Property Group strongly suggest you to create an annual schedule for your home maintenance to reduce the chances of any surprise breakdowns in your home.
