Purchasing a home is often the largest investment you will make in your life. However, just because you've closed on a home doesn't mean you are done spending money. Today we'll talking about 3 additional expenses that may come up once you actually move into your new home. The more your prepare for unexpected expenses, the more you can enjoy your new Palm Beach home. 
  1. Paint and Carpet
    • We tell all of our clients to plan on paying for new paint and carpet in their homes.  Even if the home looks perfect when you first see it, once the sellers move out with all their furniture and wall decorations, a lot of the time the walls are banged up and their furniture can hide a lot of carpet stains.
  2. Window Treatment and Light Fixtures
    • Another cost you probably wouldn't account for. These are usually cheap fixes and are needed in only a few rooms, but sometimes they are needed around the entire house which can quickly add up. 
  3. A/C and Appliances
    • The last thing to set aside money for is for air conditioning and appliances. Even though they may be running today, anything can happen after you move in. It's always good to set aside money for these things just in case.
If you have any other questions about home much money to put aside for these fixes, or are interested in buying or selling a home in Palm Beach County, please give us a call. We'd love to help you!
