Here in Washington state, the purchase and sale agreement includes an option to ask the sellers of a home to purchase a one year home warranty for their buyers. I often find that my first time buyers don't know what a home warranty is, and I've run across sellers that are unfamiliar with home warranties and what they do. Anyone buying or selling will need to address the issue, so let's go over the basics.
If you haven't bought a home yet, you're missing out on a wonderful feeling. That moment when you walk through your doors, throw your purse or keys on the counter, plop down on your couch and breathe a sigh of relief while thinking, "Finally, it's ours (or mine)!" There is a in joy looking at all of your boxes, rolling your eyes about the amount of stuff you have to unpack, then giving yourself a moment to take a nap because you worked hard to get here and earned it! Yes, that's a real feeling.
Congratulations! You're a homeowner. If you're new to homeownership, you may wonder what comes next or worry about how to maintain this huge investment of yours. Thankfully, we live in the age of information, so resources abound. Here are some of my favorite places to go for all things related to home. These aren't sites that I am affiliated with. These are sites that I enjoy, and find useful, as a homeowner.
Fall is my favorite season. It's cliche, I know, but I can't get over my love of sweaters, boots, fresh apple cider, football, fall festivals, and evenings by the fire. While it's easy to get lost in the joy of this season, fall is also an important time for home owners to complete necessary home maintenance to keep their home in top condition through the cold months ahead.
