It’s hard for me to get my head around the fact that we are selling our family home.
But, I recognize it makes the most sense. Given the fact that all our adolescents are now off living their lives, this lake house just doesn’t make much sense. The size and the way it’s laid out is really meant for a family to occupy. It’s the quintessential family lake house with a wing for the kids room, a big kitchen and a charming master suite. Plus, it has constantly been so comfortable with the HVAC program we’ve had. While a bit long in the tooth, that HVAC program is still getting the job done for us. However, keeping up with the lake house puts a lot of work on both my wife and I. We wanted to downsize. So, both of us put our lake house on the market. The realtor told us in the afternoon one of the things she saw in the lake house that needed an update to fetch the best price. One of those things was to update the HVAC unit. While I was sort of onboard with several of her suggestions, this one hit me off. But, I kept that to myself. The notion of getting rid of something that was still now working, and now working well, was just nonsensical to me. However, after doing a bit of research and seeing the comps in this area, I backed up on my position. It became unquestionably clear that the outdated HVAC device would have to go in favor of better technology and efficiency. Once both of us got that done and a few other updates, it didn’t take long to find a client who would make it a family lake house once again.
