Buying a Home Means That You Need to Fix Things and Care for Things

I went into buying my home with a lot of pride and happiness. My dad warned me that when you buy a home, you are on your own with taking care of the place, I figured that I would try to buy a newer place that would have less problems, but my budget only called for buying a place that is 20 years old instead. The first thing that broke was my fridge, and suddenly, I needed major appliance repair in Sacramento very quickly. Dad chuckled when I called to tell him that something had already broken during my first week in my new home. He said that I should expect to take time to care for everything in the house so that I can keep everything working and looking good for as long as possible.

I am only 26 years old, and no one else I know my age has the ability to buy a home like I have done. I have been working since I was 13 years old. And unlike most kids, I didn’t rush out to buy video games and candy. I carefully saved my money. I was obsessed. I told my parents that I wanted to be rich one day, and the only way I could do that was to save all my pennies. I don’t think they really believed me, but they were stunned when I continued on saving all the way up into my 20s. I even have my retirement fund started already and it has quite a bit of money. But buying a home was a very new thing to me.

Dad said that he could not help to fix my fridge because he knows nothing about them. He gave me the number of a place to call, so that is what I did after he and I ended our conversation. It was really simple to do, and an employee came to my house to see what the problem is. He was able to get everything working again in a pretty quick manner.
