It seemed that everything started to go wrong in our home when we were getting ready to sell the place.
We were about to have the house listed on the market when the toilet started leaking on the floor.
I called a local contractor to see what was going on and he said the wax ring was likely compromised and would have to be replaced. So I had that taken care of. Then I thought we were ready to list the house and the cooling system started having troubles. It was nothing but warm air coming from the HVAC vents and I knew this was going to be a huge issue for any potential buyers. Our real estate agent suggested that we go for a new HVAC system upgrade. I was hesitant about doing this because that would be costly and we wouldn’t even be able to use the new HVAC system. The real estate agent discussed the matter seriously with us. She explained how it was true we wouldn’t be able to use it, at least for long, but it was worth the investment because it would make it easier to sell the house. Not to mention, it would add value to the house so we likely would sell the house for way more money making the investment entirely worth it. When she put things that way, I didn’t hesitate to call the local HVAC contractors and we had a new energy efficient HVAC system installed. When people came to see the house, they all really loved the place. We had new paint, new carpeting, and a new HVAC. There really wasn’t anything not to love about the house, we certainly enjoyed it over the years. We ended up selling the house for way over the asking price and we were able to get a nice home in the country after that.
