My wife and I can sometimes me too stubborn for our own good.
We are both the sort who like to find solutions to challenges.
And we’re not afraid to get our hands dirty doing it. This might have something to do with just how well we perform inside the zone controlled HVAC of our respective work spaces. However, that determination and tenacity can sometimes end up biting a person in the butt. This is exactly what happened when we initially listed our home. The realtor we chose had a veritable list of things that needed to be done to our home to get it market ready. However, many of those items required some pretty serious cash outlay that my wife and I did not find appealing. It kind of felt like if we were going to do all this stuff for our house then why wouldn’t we want to just stay in it. It just didn’t make sense to us to do things like replace the HVAC equipment and completely re-landscape our yard to sell the house. So against our realtor’s wishes, we put the house on the market anyway. And it did nothing but sit there. The few prospective buyers that did come to look at the house pretty much turned around and walked out. Apparently, most home buyers these days are looking for a turn key situation. Once this was clear, we knew we had made an error and went back to our realtor’s upgrade list. We called the HVAC company and scheduled an appointment with the HVAC contractor. After that, we had the latest in residential HVAC and the most HVAC technology we could get our hands on installed. The house sold 3 weeks later for our asking price.
