My mother is getting ready to sell her house and it has been a nightmare for me.
She can’t really do anything on her own anymore.
So that means every project she wants done has to be hired or one of her kids does it. My mother isn’t made of money, so I Don’t want her to waste it hiring people out. She wants to get quite a bit for the house. So it makes sense to fix it up somewhat. I have painted every wall and ceiling in her house now. I have also gotten the rugs stretched, washed and smelling good. I changed all the outlets so that they are qhite and even bought her new switch plates. I fixed a leaky toilet and a faucet that was busted in the bathroom. The kitchen sink got replaced and I even found her a cheap dishwasher online. The last thing I feel that has to be fixed is the HVAC situation in the house. Her system is ancient and going to die at any minute. Anyone who tours the house is going to notice the horrible heating and cooling situation. She either needs to wait until the fall to try and sell or get a new unit. The HVAC when on makes a horrible grinding noise. I have tried fixing it myself and can’t stop it. I even called my buddy who is an HVAC contractor. He told me the HVAC equipment was just too old. It wasn’t going to last a year. I feel she should just wait until we have a moderate weather day and turn the HVAC off. Let the new homeowner deal with it.
