Have you been working from home during this pandemic? Many businesses have been offering this as an option for their employees, and it’s expected that this option will continue to be available for quite some time after the end of the pandemic. If that’s the case for you, what can you do to make this a cost-effective option for the long term?
Think about how your working from home has affected your property. It’s likely that your utility usage has gone up, which means the appliances, fixtures, and finishes involved in using those utilities have seen increased use as well. While some items are relatively inexpensive and easy to replace, there may be some damage happening behind the scenes that is more long-lasting, or that could be more difficult to repair. It would be good to think about the effect things like these may be having on the long-term resale value of your home.
