Well, when we found it, it looked like everyone forgot the AC unit was ever even there.
Here we go again. I’m sure everyone is sick and tired of hearing about it, but I’m equally sick and tired of looking! That’s why I will continue to talk about my adventures in real estate hunting until I’ve either had my fill, or I’ve successfully attained that dream house! For months I’ve been anxiously browsing every home listing in our area and price range – and that task is exhausting. It’s so competitive around here that you really have to be diligent. We haven’t had a ton of luck finding that one property that just WOWs us, especially in our limited price range… until today. We just saw my literal dream home, and I want it bad. The only problem is, the old house definitely needs a major HVAC overhaul, and it’s going to cost us. When we were wrapping up inside the space, suddenly we realized that we had not seen the furnace or air conditioning unit anywhere. There was cool air passing through the air vents, so the AC was definitely working. The AC clearly had to be hidden around the side of the house, where the cooling system could be camouflaged. Well, when we found it, it looked like everyone forgot the AC unit was ever even there. I’ve literally never seen such an ancient air conditioner in my entire life. This AC was a wide and long rectangle, in an awkward pastel salmon color. I honestly wouldn’t have even recognized that it was AC equipment, if it wasn’t right where you’d expect to find a cooling system attached! The old thing must be at least 30 years old, and begging for replacement. Now that we’ve found the best house in the area, we just need to consider what it will cost to remove the AC fossil from the property and install modern cooling.
