You have finally found your ideal home and have started living your dream. As a new homeowner, you are thrilled about your new home. Let 2023 be the year you make resolutions for your home, thus making your life as a homeowner more rewarding. Below are a few things you should practice or do in 2023 that will help you become a better homeowner:
Sustainability never goes out of style
Saving energy and going green never goes out of fashion. This year, let your first resolution for your home as a responsible homeowner be kind to the planet. Try to switch off or unplug electrical appliances when not in use, and change from traditional electrical solutions to sustainable counterparts like LED bulbs or powering electrical appliances using solar power, etc. In short, make conscious decisions that reduce energy consumption.
You can also add recycling and reusing to this list, as these steps play an important role in promoting sustainable living.
Reassess your Housing Loan
This one is not just for 2023 but for the next few years. Prepare a rough budget for the month and year by the start of the year, and figure out whether you can pay a little extra every month or every few months for your housing loan. This will help you clear off your loan faster.
Refinance if it helps. Do your research and try refinancing because it can lower the monthly payment and interest rate if done right.
Tip: If you need help paying on time or often miss out on your payment, set up auto payment immediately to avoid paying the late fees.
Keep the Warranties and Manuals Safe
If you have moved into a new home, you also have plenty of new appliances. These appliances come with warranty papers and manuals. Make it a point to keep these organized in a folder where you can easily find them when necessary. This would help you keep track of the warranties and insurances, thus helping renew if required. Keeping manuals handy can also come as a lifesaver.
‘Green Revolution’ at Home
Build a small garden on your balcony, buy more plants, and improve the indoor air quality, aesthetically. The luxury flats in Koramangala, like Advaitha Aksha, have large living rooms, spacious bedrooms, and expansive overhanging balconies, offering you enough and more space to bring more plants into the picture.
Maintenance is key
Of course. Your home is new, and in the best shape it can ever be. However, this doesn’t mean your home doesn’t need care. Maintenance is the key to keeping your home ‘healthy.’ Make a list of the things that need to be taken care of this year, keep updating the list, and check off the ones done.
Besides all these, you can take steps towards being a responsible homeowner by paying taxes on time, checking on home insurance, and looking for better ideas to make your home more eco-friendly.
