There are other closing costs required when purchasing a new home that people often do not consider before they make this big decision.

There are a number of seasonal maintenance items that are best to do in the winter – or necessary due to possible snow and ice build-up – and the uninviting weather is the perfect time to hone in on the health of your home. Don’t worry about tackling this all in one weekend, but rather, make a list of five to 10 items you could knock off over an entire week.
