I never believed I’d be the sort of person to live in one area for years without moving.
I wanted to live in different cities and see the world in college.
After growing up on a farm with few people around, I was drawn to the fast city life. But alas! Life had other plans for me. In my last year at school, I met my girlfriend, and she fell pregnant. Even though she gave me the option of opting out of the responsibility, I chose to step up. I loved her and knew we’d make a wonderful family together. I got a job two weeks before graduation, and we moved in together to start our family life. Fast forward 25 years later, we had three kids, and the last one just joined college. We felt it was time for us to now see the world which meant selling the house. A selling agent had loved everything about it since I kept the house in great shape. But she advised us to upgrade the HVAC system to increase its value. She told us clients were more eco-conscious so we should aim for an energy efficient HVAC system. We had an area HVAC professional come in to assess the house and recommend the best energy efficient HVAC system to get. It took about a week to complete HVAC installation and already there was a buyer interested in the house. We plan on using some of the money to fund our travels, put more in our retirement accounts and spend the rest on a small bungalow near where our first born lives.
