Unlike living in an apartment where everything is taking care of by management or the buildings super the upkeep of a house is the owners responsibility. Here is a list of things you may want to budget for when buying a house.โ €

๐ŸŒฑ Landscaping including snow removal, leaf pick up and the upkeep of your garden in the summerโ €

๐ŸŠโ™‚๏ธ Pool cleaningโ €

๐Ÿ”ฅ Chimney cleaning

โ €๐Ÿš› Garbage pickup (this is automatically done in cities but not in most towns across Fairfield County)โ €

๐Ÿšฟ Powerwashing the exterior of the houseโ €

๐Ÿšฝ Septic maintenanceโ €

๐Ÿ’ง Well water maintenanceโ €

๐Ÿ”‹The generator needs to be serviced every yearโ €

๐Ÿฅต Your AC and heating systems needs to be serviced twice a year and if your house runs on oil you are subject to additional oil costs tooโ €typically when you buy a house the previous homeowner provides you with a list of the services and companies theyโ€™ve used.
