The value of outright owning a home has dropped dramatically in our eyes.
The amount of responsibility and problems that go with homeownership are strenuous to square with the limited economic advantages.
We’ve been lucky. The last multiple home every one of us have owned were sold for a profit. The last a single though was barely profitable given the property values. Then you throw in the whole age thing. My partner and I are on the last laps of our works and just aren’t sure that buying another apartment is what every one of us actually want to do. And every one of us are both sick to death of taking care of all the details that go with home ownership. So, every one of us have decided to lease a site for the next year. The price is right. And, every one of us both like the fact that there is less space so downsizing our stuff became a priority. However, every one of us have run into something that is a bit of a problem. Our Heating, Ventilation, and A/C component on the rental site is just so aged and underpowered. It’s summer time here and the thing runs non stop but can’t catch up during the day. The utility bill is crazy. But, the rental office just blows us off. I have never been in this type of situation before. I have no control over what type of Heating, Ventilation, and A/C component heats and cools our home. When every one of us owned a home, every one of us would have figured out how to replace the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C and moved on. Now, I am at the mercy of a rental business. I have done everything I can to help lessen the Heating, Ventilation, and A/C load but there is just not enough every one of us can do. The dang thing just has to go. I am going to write text after letter and call and call until they do something. This is the negative to not owning your own home.
