What Are Your Weekends Worth? The Value of Low-Maintenance Homes

For most homeowners in New England, there seems to be a never-ending to-do list of home projects on our days off and weekends. Lawn maintenance, snow removal, fixing or replacing appliances, leaky roofs or missing shingles, heating or plumbing issues, and a variety of other repairs and improvements all add up to time, effort, and cost. Depending on the age of your home, with every task you manage to check off the list, you add two more.

But what if you could eliminate most – or even all – of these items from your project list? Imagine the time and money you could reclaim on your days off or weekends to take up a hobby, go for a bike ride, enjoy days out with family and friends, or plan a travel adventure with the money you didn’t have to spend on fixing the house.

A quality of life boost is definitely possible if you choose a new construction home. You can move into a property that has energy-efficient and up-to-date features that will lighten your to-do list. Unpack your moving boxes and settle in with a new roof over your head, heating/cooling and hot water systems in pristine condition, new appliances that have never been used, and electrical and plumbing you won’t have to worry about for years. And, many of these are under warranty. You can take advantage of potentially high long-term savings by avoiding repair or replacement costs and enjoying lower utility costs with energy-efficient models.
