After updating the AC, we had more interest in the house

My first house was a two bedroom and one bathroom place that was small, but big enough for me and my dog.

It was the perfect size for a bachelor when a new job and a fresh college degree.

I lived in the two-bedroom house for a long time and then I met my wife. We lived in the house until we got married, and then we decided to upgrade to something bigger. We rented the house for a while, but both of us grew tired of dealing with renters and Rental problems. Eventually we decided to sell the house. We didn’t get a lot of interest in the beginning and that was a surprise. I really wanted to sell the house without any help from a realtor. That didn’t seem possible when we had no offers in the first 60 days. My wife contacted a realtor and friend that she knew from college. The woman came out to the house and evaluated our listing and the amount of money that we wanted for the property. One of the first comments that the woman made was about our Central AC. She insisted that was the reason why we did not have any offers. The central AC was old and needed to be replaced. He told my wife and I to spend the money and update the central AC on our own. She promised the results would be astonishing and she was right. After we updated the central AC, we got three offers on the property in seven days. We probably could have listed the house for $10,000 more and still got a full offer.
