Do You Need a Home Warranty

Our real estate agents at the Masiello Group are always happy to assist current and future New England homeowners in getting the most value from their property.

That often involves pointing out resources buyers and sellers aren't aware of yet.

A prime example is National Home Warranty Day, celebrated on February 10.  Yes, National Home Warranty Day is really a thing – and so are home warranties.

Just about everybody has heard of homeowners insurance. After all, it's required in many cases. The home warranty, on the other hand, is not well known. That's unfortunate since a home warranty can save you hundreds of dollars in an average year.

Let's take a closer look at the two and how they differ.

New England Home Buying Winter
People often ask our real estate agents if they should wait until springtime to start looking for a new home. After all, the cold weather, blustery winds, and short days don't exactly create a welcoming environment for home shopping.

While the thought of trudging through the snow to go to open houses may not be appealing, there are several compelling reasons why winter is the absolute best time to find your dream home. Consider these points, and you just may decide that you're ready to start looking today.

Bangor Gyms to Get in Shape
Considering all the turkey, stuffing, pumpkin pie and Christmas cookies that come with the holiday season, it's no surprise that losing weight is one of the most common New Year's resolutions. If you're committed to getting in shape in 2019, you're certainly not alone. 

Here in Bangor, Maine, there are a lot of great gyms to help you get your resolution going. We asked our Bangor real estate agents to name their favorite gyms in the area, and we got a lot of great answers. So no matter what your workout style or fitness goals may be, there's an option for you. Best of all, they're all within a few minutes' drive of our many homes for sale in Bangor, Maine!
