Are You Facing Emergency Goodyear Home Repairs?
According to a recent survey by HomeServe USA, almost half of all homeowners in the United States are faced with paying an unexpected home repair each year. Some of the repairs are fairly minor, but others can be costly. Bankrate.com polled homeowners and found that 63% did not have sufficient savings to cover an unexpected home repair of $1,000 or more. So how are all of these homeowners paying for these repairs?
The lucky homeowners who have an emergency fund are able to pay for most home repairs. In the rare case of very expensive repairs such as a new roof or new HVAC, these people were paying for the majority of the repair and financing or using personal credit cards to pay the remaining balance of the bill. If the repairs were due to damage covered by homeowners insurance, that saved the homeowners a huge bill.
Other homeowners found that using the equity that they had in their home was a viable option. This could be using a home equity line of credit that was existing or getting a home equity loan which is basically a second mortgage on the property. The benefit of using home equity is that the interest rate can be much better than using a credit card or other personal loans.
But what are your options if you do not want to invest another dime into your home and are not willing to invest your time either? Those are questions that many homeowners think about after a few years of pouring more and more money into a home that is little more than a money pit. But there is a simple solution to this issue. Contact Higher Offer and request an offer to purchase your home.
