As a local realtor in a large city, I’ve helped numerous people get into their up-to-date dream home, or possibly their first home. Or maybe that sale of mine might have even been an investment for a retiree. Now, I’m satisfied to say, that it is my turn to own an investment. I showed this older duplex to some prospective customers a few weeks ago, however they took a pass, plus the two of us continued on the hunt. However, I could not get my mind off of that duplex that I showed… I started the research to make it my own. Now, numerous weeks later, the inspections have gone well, plus my mortgage is almost set. Soon I’ll be ready to go begin to remodel some areas of the building. For one thing, the duplex has window units, and they seem to be leaking. I have chosen to update them while we’re in the remodel plus will install a ductless mini-split heating and A/C system for my new, older duplex. I realized that a ductless mini-split is a cost-efficient way to update inefficient window units with an HVAC system that will give excellent heating and cooling–plus I won’t have to add any ductwork to the duplex. The ductless mini-split system installs simply plus unobtrusively to a wall without any ductwork, plus it will allow each individual unit to each have a thermostat, separate from the other unit. I will just have to update some wood, a few windows, install the ductless mini-split heating and A/C unit, then I’ll be ready to paint. I cannot wait to be a landlord!
