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.⠀
🌱 Landscaping including snow removal, leaf pick up and the upkeep of your garden in the summer⠀
🏊♂️ Pool cleaning⠀
🔥 Chimney cleaning
⠀🚛 Garbage pickup (this is automatically done in cities but not in most towns across Fairfield County)⠀
🚿 Powerwashing the exterior of the house⠀
🚽 Septic maintenance⠀
💧 Well water maintenance⠀
🔋The generator needs to be serviced every year⠀
🥵 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 too⠀typically when you buy a house the previous homeowner provides you with a list of the services and companies they’ve used.
