I take so many photos of each house that I wonder why I didn’t get into photography in school? Not that my pictures are any works of art or even very good, but I have had Clients ask for the cover photo before. Do you have photos of your home? I suggest you go around with your digital camera and photograph your valuables. Take some of your interior and exterior. If you have a disaster, your insurance company will appreciate your diligence AND they may get you a payment faster. After you take the photos, save them to a SD card or a flash drive and keep it in a safe/secure/fireproof place.

Buying a home is great. Owning a home is a lot of work! If you buy an older home (10 – 15 years old plan for $500 – 5000 per year. Younger homes (2 – 10 years old) will range from $100 – 1000. Replace a water heater and you can spend around $600 – 1000, and a new furnace can run upwards of $8000 or more. Why am I telling you this? Because most home buyers do not plan for these expenses. And most home warranties and ALL home owners insurances do not cover aged equipment.
