Average annual maintenance cost for your home.
So you buy an house in reasonable condition with no structural damage. To maintain the house value at the purchase price, how much would you need to spend a year (based over a 25 year mortgage period)? Based on my own experience and anecdotal evidence I'm saying 1% a year? Would anyone disagree?
