I have been looking for an affordable home to buy for several months now. The home I decide to buy must be affordable because I do not have a lot of money to put down. The higher the price of the home, the more down payment money is necessary, so I can’t pay too much for the home even if I can afford the payments. Anyway, yesterday I went out with the realtor and I think I have found the home I am going to purchase. It has a pretty low asking price because it needs updates and repairs. It is an older home, almost 100 years old, in fact, and it has a really creepy cellar and furnace in the cellar. I went down the cellar stairs and right away heard weird noises coming from the furnace. That leads me to believe that the furnace will probably have to be replaced, or at the least,, I will have to get a furnace repair done. The first thing to do will be to have the home inspector look at the furnace and give me his opinion. Next, I think the water heater needs to be repaired or replaced as well. I turned on the hot water faucet in the kitchen, and the water never got hot. The water heater may just be shut off while the home is vacant, I don’t know, but the water heater may also be broken. Next, the air conditioners are window unit air conditioners. I am not sure I like that at all, The window a/c units block all the views from the windows, plus window a/c units are kind of old fashioned. We will see what happens!
