It has been a little over a month since I last updated on here, and since the last post, I can say that we’ve had some pretty major forward movement since then. Del Campo Plumbing took care of our low flowing toilet issue with speed and professionalism and since then, we have the most powerful toilets on the block. Or at least I would like to think so. We have also begin our hunt for a place in Coventry, so things have been progressing pretty well. We have been showing the home more often, and finding now that we have more interest than ever. This has us looking forward to the next major steps to come. Once the home finally comes off the market and into the hands of new owners, we can afford a down payment on a place in Coventry and really get the ball rolling.
It has kind of opened my eyes though to the issues that have been slowly plaguing my house that I probably wouldn’t have noticed before. Take the toilet for instance. I always just assumed that the issue was something in the water pressure, or something to that effect, and without actually taking a look into the inner workings, never would have realized that it was an issue that would have been a major fix later on, and one that would have cost me a lot of money if dealing with on our own. Since showing the home, there have been other minor things that have popped up, and we have now moved towards taking the approach of, take care of it now, so the new homeowner doesn’t have to, and as well it leads to having a better resume, so to speak, for our home, of all the new and perfectly working items.
For instance, we are also grateful that Del Campo offers water heater repair as the one in the home was nearing the end of it’s shelf life. Another thing that I never would have known if not for looking deeper into the item. It wasn’t that the water heater was bad, it was simply outdated. With so many new models and styles, and energy saving units on the market now, it was high time to look into finally replacing it. Sure it was another investment that we’re gambling on making a return for, but at this point, we want to be as thorough as possible.
This final section seems to be the last major item that we need to work on, and then the home will be in tip top shape, and with the amount of interest we’ve garnered on the location, we’re hoping that this will give us the means to have a competitive price on my home, giving us the ability to put money down on a nicer place in Coventry. As with anything in life, you get back what you put in, and that’s the approach we’re taking with the sale of my home, so wish us luck!
