Our plan was to consistently keep owning homes.
We would simply change homes as the needs of our family changed.
The beauty area was the fact that a person could count on making a bit of a profit on a lake new home sale. That dynamic has completely changed now. First, the housing market is in such a constant state of flux that there is no such thing as a sure profit anymore. If you do want make some currency when selling a lake new home it takes tons of work. The upfront costs for upgrading a lake new home to sell can be staggering. Things care about new heating and cooling systems and living room renovations don’t come cheap. So, our partner and I decided to simply rent when all of us got out of our last home. We basically broke even so decided to put that currency into something that could grow that currency. Now all of us are renting. For the most part, I like it because our household job list is far shorter than in any other time in our life. If something goes wrong, I just call the rental office and they deal with it. However, there is 1 key element that I am in near constant stress about. The Heating and A/C plan in our rental lake new home is just the worst. The heating and cooling equipment is so old and overmatched that I am calling the rental office every few weeks for yet another maintenance call. I can’t seem to reason with these people at all. They just turn a deaf ear to any logic about replacing the Heating and A/C system.
