Taking care of the basics

More and more homeowners are putting off a dream kitchen or bathroom remodel to pay for essential replacement projects and upgrades.1 The reason? Homes are aging‚ especially in the Boston area.

  • Forty percent of US properties are at least 50 years old. In Boston‚ more than half were built before 1939.
  • According to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies‚ 48% of home improvement spending in our area went to projects like a new roof or water heater.2
  • In Boston‚ 23% of homeowners made energy-efficient retrofits‚ such as adding insulation.

As the #1 mortgage company in Greater Lexington for 17 consecutive years‚ Capstone is here to provide guidance and support.
