5 Things Homeowners Waste Money On - As a homeowner, you have many responsibilities that fall on your plate, and many of those responsibilities can be expensive. The trick is figuring out what you should spend money on and what you need not waste money on. Here are five things homeowners waste money on, to help you keep your cash in your pocket.

 

Space-Fillers

Whether you’re moving from an apartment or smaller home, you will be stuned by how much extra space you have. However, do not fall into the trap of purchasing a ton of little things to fill that space.

 

Don’t Dive In

While it seems incredibly luxurious to have your own backyard pool, it is not always worth the cost of up-keep and maintenance.

 

Don’t Use a Backup Plan

Some people will be prepared for every kind of emergency, but that is not necessary when it comes to a backup generator. While they cost lots of money and can help you prepare for the worst, they do not really provide a ton of value when you sell your home.

 

Window Insulation

No one on their own willingly throws money out the window, but that will be what you will be doing if your windows aren’t insulated properly.

 

Lawn Care Services

Often times, lawn care services promise you a beautiful, lush lawn in exchange for a hefty price. Those costs will add up, while the job looks like something you could have done in your spare time.

Steve,
Too often the pool is used for a month or two and then is just a maintenance issue.
