Bad News/ Good News

>> 7.18.2012

Bad news: The electrician told us that the laundry attached to the garage apartment sucks up so much energy (he used technical terms) that we would have to run a whole new line to power an oven in the space. The costs are just too much for us to do right now considering the amount of time it would take to make up for the difference in profit.

Good news: We have a renter for August 1- September 1 that did not question paying $650 for a tiny place without an oven. A friend of ours is moving out of town and had an extremely hard time finding some who would accept him for such a short period of time. He was concerned for us in that we would miss the window of time to find a student to occupy the space, but I told him we wouldn't have an issue finding another tenant for September. We'll see how that works out!

Bad news: Our AC went out last night. July isn't the best time to go without an AC in Texas!

Good news: We'll get to use that home warranty that the seller provided to us when buying the house. Maybe we'll get a brand new unit out of the deal as well?

Ugh! I hope you get AC soon. That would be unbearable.

Hurray for a renter.

Wow, well that's great that your bad things have silver linings!

Talk about how lucky you can get....great job!

Hope you get a new ac unit -- but be forewarned, they'll try to patch/repair/do anything they can before they pay out and get a new unit. If they do a replacement unit, it will not be the best quality.

We found out the hard way, and I've stopped urging people to go with the Warranties when we sell houses.
