Of course while I am spending the summer at my Aunt’s place, she is down in Myrtle Beach, SC. The plan is to get this place ready for the market and everyone decided that I could live here and take care of the things that needed doing. It is not really in very bad shape or at least there is nothing really wrong with it that I can see. We hired a home inspector and he said that we needed to find someone to do HVAC installation in Queens, which we knew pretty well. Aunt Cicely has refused to get the air conditioning fixed for close to three years. Of course she is correct that it is not really hot for that much of the year in this part of the world, but if you want to sell the place it is going to be hard to find a buyer that does not expect the house to be warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
The garage is a bit of a problem honestly. She was letting my cousin Jack stay in the loft above it and he did not exactly take care of the place. Everyone knows what sort of problems he has and she is probably the only one he knows that he had not screwed over to feed his problems. He is in jail now and probably will not be out for a long while, so it does not matter really. At any rate I am going to start on that part of it once the rest of the house is ready. I figure that it is not going to be that important, although if it were me I would think about renting it to a college student. I am sure you could get a good rate.
