Research shows that financially, homeowners are overwhelmingly unprepared to maintain the value of their investment, with 68% of homeowners planning to use a credit card or loan to pay for their next home improvement project. These credit cards and loans are often not paid in full and add to homeowner debt, putting them at risk for paying expensive interest costs, which adds a significant expense to the overall cost of their home improvement and maintenance projects. Failing to save, along with growing debt puts the homeowner's financial health in jeopardy.
