My husband and I had decided that we wanted to move out of the old house we had lived in forever. The kids had all moved out, and we no longer needed a four bedroom home. We started looking for a smaller home, but we also had some things that we didn’t want to go without. We were beginning to think that we would never find the home we wanted, when I came across an ad for an open house. The house was perfect on paper, and we went to the open house. I was so disappointed when we walked on. There were huge fans in the rooms, and it was uncomfortably hot. The ad had said there was air conditioning, but there was no hint of it. The realtor came out and she was very apologetic. She told us the AC had not been working when she got there, but she had called the HVAC company and they were to be there any minute. She convinced us to just look around, but I wasn’t planning on doing a serious look-see. I have to admit that I was enamored with the lovely modern kitchen. My husband thought the garage was almost perfect. We both sighed when we saw the master bedroom, with the large walk in tub and shower and the walk-in closet. I was ready to leave when the HVAC company showed up. It didn’t take long for him to fix the AC or for us to take this as a sign that this was our future home. The air conditioning was working wonderfully by the time we signed the paperwork.
