After all, we weren’t selling it to some struggling family, but to the wealthy elite, who don’t mind paying an arm and a leg for quality climate control equipment.
Marsha and I had no desire to find a new place to live, but the offers we were getting on our house were impossible to ignore. Remember The Godfather said he could make you an offer you couldn’t refuse? That’s what we had going on here, because this area had recently become a hot-spot for the tech community. We did a little market research and found that with a few small repairs and upgrades we could sell this house for ten times more than we paid for it. We bought it for $100k, and less than a decade later could sell it for a million bucks! Before then we had to get a new roof, a new central HVAC system, and new appliances for the kitchen. We consulted with a few local real estate experts who told us that spending $10,000 on renovations could raise our asking price by 20 or 30 thousand! With that in mind, we got the nicest central HVAC system we could find, because we knew it would raise the price of the house even further. After all, we weren’t selling it to some struggling family, but to the wealthy elite, who don’t mind paying an arm and a leg for quality climate control equipment. We worked with a local general contractor, so that we could go through one business for the HVAC installation and the roof repairs. This one company handled it all, and it did very quickly. I can’t wait for this all to be done with, so Marsha and I can move to the beach.
