Ever since we became homeowners we felt the homeowners pinch. before moving in we had to make a few repair and improvements as per the suggestions from the inspector. we installed hurricane shutters at the main door, we replaced one door due to termite infestation. Within a year we had a leak and spent $2500 for the roof repair. As of writing this story we detected moist carpet in my office room.
The constant work like these go on, our home is 1992 built and this is the time we expect to pick up few repair bills. I was thinking about some good ways to handle increasing amount of bills towards our home repair. Then I read about home repair fund.
The costs of a home warranty vary from one provider to the next. The LA Times presented the findings of a survey conducted by home warranty companies across 7 locations in the US. At the time, the average annual cost of these services ranged between $400 and $600. But how do you know whether one home warranty provider is better than the next?
According to Consumers’ Checkbook, an acclaimed non-profit entity based out of Washington DC, you should do your homework when it comes to home warranty providers. This is especially true when purchasing a home with an existing home warranty.
If your job requires you to spend a significant amount of time in front of a computer, how many mails do you write per day at work?
I do send around 30 -50 emails per day on average which includes mails to my team members, direct reports, leaders and colleagues. I write mails to people working in my organization or some other organization we deal with.
It is very difficult to cope with a inbox which receives a mail every couple of minutes and you require to answer a few of them as soon as possible.
