There are many motives to keep your home in great shape and now I am going to go over a few of them.
1. Safety. There are many safety issues that can happen in a home through time and use. A large one that should be monitored is moisture leakage in to the house that could potentially cause the growth of mold. There are many dissimilar places that water leaks be able to happen, such as ground water, plumbing leaks inside of walls, as well as roof leakage.
2. Generally condition of the house. When a home is kept up properly, it not only looks nicer, but is easier to maintain. If you maintain your home on a regular basis, it doesn’t take as much to keep it in great shape. Generally people do little to nothing and then are faced with major renovate costs that could of been avoided.
3. Saving money. Proper house maintenance will definitely save you money in the long run. Little things can and will turn in to big things if you allow them go. As a home inspector in Pittsburgh, I have seen so many things that could of been easily fixed, but were left go, and are now costly items that need to be repaired before the home is sold.
4. Increased value of home. A home that is in good condition will be able to obtain more money for the seller when it goes on the market. This is common sense, although I see home everyday that are in poor shape and the seller wonders why it won’t obtain their inflated asking price.
