I had a call from an "out there later" seller today. He's planning for the future sale and wanted to know if replacing his HVAC unit now would be valuable in two years when they plan to sell the house. Well I know that there are all different values to HVAC units when you buy them and that results in different values when you sell too. So I discussed this. I also shared my personal belief that men and women buy houses very differently!

Women want to see the kitchen and the baths and men want the house to be in good working condition or the exact opposite not in good working condition so that they can get a better price and fix it up. I contend that the person who cleans the house still is the one who finally decides which house will be purchased. Some of you may believe that I am wrong but, even if the couple is of the same sex I have found this to be true! My two cents!

So I still believe that you have to take that into consideration when you improve a home. All of that said look at the cool site that I found! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I'm e-mailing it to myself to add to the home computer under favorites!  When I get home today I'm going to be looking at my house in a different way!  It's time! I'm rolling up my sleeves again-I think there could be some spring fever starting here!
