Selling our home has been anything but a hassle free enterprise that’s for sure.
I’m just hoping that it will all be worth all the effort, emotions and energy. For my wife and I to give up the place where we raised our kids was rough. And it took us a long time discussing it inside the air conditioning of our home to feel good about selling the house. But those discussions were important and a very essential part of the decision process. My wife and I have always been partners and we are still partners as we move into this next part. Still, selling the house and moving out didn’t come without some tough decisions. The HVAC replacement was one of them. Our realtor that had the listing was well thought of in our community. She sold a lot of property in the area but she was also a genuinely nice person. We were looking for both of those characteristics. When she suggested that we upgrade HVAC equipment during her very first visit to our house, I wasn’t all that thrilled. I didn’t understand why I would replace something that was still working. Plus I had invested a lot of HVAC maintenance into that HVAC equipment. I thought it still had a decade left in it. Fortunately, our realtor had data to back up her suggestions and we made the decision to upgrade our residential HVAC. It paid off with a profit on our home that is still hard to wrap our heads around.
