life estimate in years

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max 10 New Lenox Illinois

 My Dad who was rare to give compliments told me this right after I had grown up and left the nest.  He told me he appreciated how I cared for the things he gave me.  One of the items he referred to was a ten-speed bike he gave me as a young teenager.  He noticed years later how the bike was still in like new condition.  I shared this story because below you will see the potential life span of nearly everything concerning a home.  The suggested life will depend on how well these items are regularly serviced and maintained!
