I just prefer the fact that the check I write each month goes toward building equity in my home… And after decade of renting apartments, it sure is nice to be a homeowner, building equity is fantastic but so is entirely great residential heating, ventilation as well as A/C; unluckily, in the all the apartments I lived in, the heating, ventilation as well as A/C component was less than ordinary! So that was another large motivation to get out of the rental scene as well as into my own house.
But it takes money, for sure I saved every bit I could in order to get enough together for a down payment on a house.
But the recent pale white warm real estate market has not been a real help, however it seems like the more I saved in order to get a place where I owned the heating, ventilation as well as A/C equipment, the more it cost. But perseverance entirely does pay off. And in my case, I kept looking at every single new thing that came on the market… That’s how I found this place as well as was able to get it for much less than the comps around it. But a large reason for that was all the labor that needed to be done. In fact, in most cases it would not have been considered livable. The first thing I had to do was address the heating as well as cooling inside the house. But the duct vents were also full of holes as well as not worth anything. Fortunately, I got some fantastic direction from an actual heating, ventilation as well as A/C professional who commanded using ductless heat pumps throughout the condo instead. And it has worked out great.
