A 70 (3.89) today.
I told my daughter that, if I should die and she has to try to sell my house, to just burn it down and sell the land that it was sitting on....that would be a lot easier on her.😄
Actually, I told her that, if she has to sell my house, to have it appraised, then sell it for $30,000 less than the appraised value, and to sell it as-is. Any prospective buyers who would look over the house, and ask to have certain things fixed (mainly just cosmetic stuff), to just tell them that, the house is being sold for $30,000 under market value so that the buyer would have that $30,000 to fix whatever they wanted, in whatever way they wanted. If no one wanted to buy the house as-is and expected everything to be fixed, to go ahead and fix it, but to sell it for the appraised value.
My house isn't worth that much anyway, considering the area that I live in. This area isn't a high dollar area, it's just an average area, with very low crime rate (I have never heard of any crimes being committed in my area). I had this house built some 40 years ago, and back then, this house...a three bedroom raised rancher with hardwood floors, and a one car garage, sitting on 1.2 acres of land, sold for $38,000. Today, it's worth maybe $170,000, based on the bank's appraisal of it. I've put in a finished family room in the basement, and had the 140 foot driveway blacktopped, and planted numerous bushes and trees, as well as had vinyl siding installed, a new roof installed, new storm windows, rain gutters and downspouts installed, a new French door installed to replace my sliding glass door to my back porch, a new garage door with a garage door opener installed, a new cement back porch installed, and a few other minor things that I've added. Of course, if my daughter had to sell my house, unless she wanted it, she could throw in my 4 wheel drive garden tractor with the 54 inch mowing deck, 46 inch snow blower, with the wheel weights and tire chains, although that cost me $17,000, but it would add incentive to a prospective buyer.
I like this house because I've lived here for 40 years, so it's comfortable, plus I know all of the quirks the house has, and I know how to deal with them. I guess most people feel this way, but when I come home from someplace, as I turn into my little cul-de-sac road and see my house, I get a happy, comfortable feeling inside, because I know I am home. It's my little piece of the world.☺️
