After 6 years on the same computer, my wife decided to buy a new one. Not because she wanted to. It was because the old one was acting up. I don't believe most people relish the thought of buying a new computer. There is so much to do to them before they work like we want them to.
Many (Smart) folks take their new, still-in-the-box computers directly to a computer guru and tell them to make it work. These people have a lot of good sense. Others, like myself and my wife, tackle the job ourselves. Sometimes it even works.
So, we spent the entire weekend trying to make the new computer work. It drives me crazy how non-intuitive these machines still are. We spent about an hour just looking for an adapter to put on the cord from the monitor so that it would fit the computer. Why don't all machines and monitors now a days use a universal plug?
We are still stumped trying to get the HP computer to talk to the HP printer. They were probably made in the same plant, why wont they talk to each other? I am sure that after more time has passed, everything will be sorted out, and my wife will be happy with the new machine.
I think buying a home is a bit like buying a new computer. When looking for either one, you have nothing but questions. How many bedrooms do you really need? Does it have a man cave? Can I get by with less than a Terabyte drive? Inquiring minds want to know!
In either case, having a trusted adviser at your side can make either purchase so much easier. So, with your next computer, get a pro to help you set it up. With your next home purchase, give den Boer Homes a call.
