One of the largest mortgage insurers in the country, Genworth Canada, recently posted a variety of videos illustrating helpful tips for homebuyers and homeowners. Today, we are featuring their video titled “Home Improvements.”
The challenges behind home improvements
Okay, so you’ve bought your first home. You pinched pennies for a few years to come up with the downpayment, and that nightmare is finally behind you. For a moment, you feel relief; you’re moved in, unpacked, and you’re lounging on your couch and you own the roof over your head...then BAM! You realize the work has only just begun because you need to start thinking about the long term factors and responsibilities of owning a house.
What happens when you want to sell? How can you help make your investment worthwhile? One of the things you can focus on is doing your own home improvements. The problem with this plan is that not everyone is handy enough to work around the house, and not everyone can afford to get someone else to do it.
Luckily, Genworth Canada put together this brief video with cost effective tips for home improvements.
