Neither one of us ever wanted to transfer from this house.
- My spouse as well as I purchased it before we had any of our 3 adolescents, as well as for all of those years it was a perfect condo for our family.
All of us had several family rooms upstairs as well as a giant living room, home office, as well as kitchen on the ground floor. The basement housed our clothes washer as well as dryer, a second powder room, as well as all of the Heating as well as A/C device from the oil furnace to the a/c air handler. All of us even had a spare family room in the basement, but we used it primarily for storage. I constantly appreciated that house, but once our 3 children had all moved away, it abruptly became too much condo for our spouse as well as I. All of us are in our 50s as well as I worry that the stairs are going to prove troublesome as we get older. I don’t want either our spouse or I to mangle ourselves permanently just ascending or descending the stairs some random day. When we finally put the condo on the market, our real estate agent recommended that we update the a/c first. The condo was already several decades in age at that point, so having a 20 year old a/c wasn’t doing us any favors on the competitive condo market. After we got a brand modern Heating as well as A/C system installed, we abruptly had more bartering power as well as could ask for a slightly higher price. The eventual customer was blissful about the brand modern a/c. I would have never realized that the age of an a/c could affect a home’s value so much separate from our real estate agent’s advice.
