Time to settle in back at work. I have some projects I am working on today, and I have to run a quick errand at lunch, other than that, not sure what the day holds. Tonight, cleaning and dinner of Chicken & Dumplings. Jordyn is doing cheer stuff and will be out of town til Wednesday.

Have a great day!

She's kind of nervous about it.

Honestly, if anything she'd just have to make consessions in the price for how old the units are. Unless they are intermittantly not working or something, there is no reason she'd be required to replace them, she could easily counteroffer to bring down the price. I know when we bought our house, the only things we made the lady that owned it fix was to fix something with the septic field in the back, there was a valve or overspill thingy broken and since it was out of code or something like that, she had to fix it for the mortgage company to approve it. If it had been up to us, we would have fixed it on our own once we owned the house, but the mortgage company wouldn't let us. For the a/c unit, it may be of some negotiation to offer to drop the price slightly and let them decide how they want to replace it and use the energy credits that are still available as enticement. And if anything, she'd only have to put the bare minimum unit on it, they can't require a certain kind, just the replacement of the equivalent I think, but her real estate agent should be able to advise on that one. Same thing with the water heater.

But like you said, when you buy houses of that age, you expect certain things to be getting close to the end of their life. Ours was about 9 or 10 years old when we bought it, so we knew going in that the roof, a/c and water heater were still the originals, but in good shape, and we'd need to work it into our budget to be replacing things in the first 5 years we were there. We also knew the septic field hadn't been emptied in about 3 years, so that would be something that would need to be done within the first year or two we were there. We've replaced the a/c unit already, and the water heater is on our thoughts, its too small of a tank for all of us as is, and the roof, we haven't even thought about that one yet...

I'm not sure if my mom's willing to knock the price down too much.

Heatwave starts today, it feels so humid and yucky and the worst is yet to come. I LOVE summer but I don't look forward to being at work on 92 and 94 degree days.
