I was looking at a home that was said to have some quirks, but the house was in perfect condition.
- I looked at the house before calling the realtor.
My partner and I did a driveby, and the owner was home. He saw us looking around and asked if we wanted to come in and look around. He showed us the two bedrooms upstairs and the master bedroom with an ensuite garden tub. The house was small from the outside, but it was large inside. I loved how he had turned the basement into a small apartment, and he was renting it out to a young man to make some extra money. There was soundproofing in the ceiling so he wasn’t bothered by his downstairs tenant. The last thing he showed us was the garage. He said that when he ought the house, the HVAC system was originally in the basement. After deciding to make the basement into an efficiency apartment, he moved it to the garage. The HVAC system still worked, but he preferred the heat pump he had installed. He said his energy bill went up twenty dollars when he had the ductless HVAC system installed, but he was no longer spending one hundred dollars a month on heating fuel, and he now had central HVAC. By the time my partner and I called his realtors, we were already prepared to buy the house. We asked the owner when he was willing to make settlement. He told us that if he could do it that day, he would. He was moving in with his son and daughter-in-law.
