Step 8: Protect Your Investment

Congratulations, and welcome home! The home-buying process is complete, which means it’s time for your maintenance plan! It’s now your responsibility and in your best financial interest to protect your investment for years to come. Performing routine maintenance on your home’s systems is always more affordable than having to fix big problems later. Be sure to watch for signs of leaks, damage, and wear.

And remember, just because the sale is complete, your relationship with your agent doesn’t need to end! After you close on your home, your agent can still help you by providing information on the real estate market, finding contractors and repair services, and even tracking your home’s current value.

Happy home-owning!
