Pennywise and Pound Foolish?

Penny Wise and Pound Foolish

“Penny wise and pound foolish” means being careful about small amounts of money, but not about large amounts, especially when it leads to wasting more money in the long run.

For example, buying a cheap but low-quality product that deteriorates quickly and needs to be replaced!  The same applies to building or renovating, you might want to avoid being pound foolish by considering the following tips:

  • Plan and set a realistic budget that covers all the necessary expenses and contingencies for the dream home you envision.
  • Hire qualified and reputable contractors who can deliver quality work and avoid costly mistakes or delays. It becomes expensive when you have to rely on a reputable contractor to fix the mess of a cheap job.
  • Get references on contractors to ensure when something does go wrong, they will not just ‘disappear’ with your hard-earned money and never be available to fix snags.
  • Invest in durable and energy-efficient materials and appliances that can save you money on maintenance and utility bills in the future.
  • Compare prices and quality of different products and services before deciding. Don’t compromise on safety or functionality for the sake of saving a few bucks.
  • Be wary of Contractors / Builders who demand a deposit up front.
