Empowering Financial Wellness Program Coordinator
15 years ago, when I bought my first house with my spouse, we were so excited about being homeowners! 3 months into our newlywed life as homeowners the dishwasher, garage door opener and water heater all broke, within the same month!!! I thought wait….didn’t we just have our home thoroughly inspected before purchasing? How can all these things break so soon? Reality check. I thought as long as we could afford the monthly mortgage payment we were going to be okay. There are a lot of hidden costs of homeownership so here are some things you may want to consider before you take that next step.
