Okay, so in truth, I was resistant from the start when it came to selling our house.
I just didn’t want to move and that’s the simple truth.
I’m not much into change. I like to get up in the morning, adjust the thermostat and take a shower. Then, I like to get ready for work and head to the office. I do my thing inside the commercial HVAC of the office all day and then it’s back home for dinner, relax a bit and then hit the sack. I have enjoyed repeating that routine over and over again in the decades that we lived in that house. But I knew my wife was right about selling the house. For one, the chances of their being this big a real estate market again in the next few years was doubtful. And we had always viewed our home as the biggest of our investments. So this was the payoff and we needed to act. I got on board but I was dragging my feet the whole way. Like when the realtor came up with this list of improvements. Replacing the HVAC equipment and putting in new kitchen appliances were going to be cost outlays that I wasn’t prepared to make. I pushed back and we put the house on the market as it was. It sat there and the only offers we received were well below market value and our asking price. So I called the HVAC professionals to have them help me out of this mess I put us in. They were able to install just the best in residential HVAC that came with all sorts of cool HVAC technology. We had an offer above asking price within a week after making those improvements.
