Waiting for the handyman...

May 15th, 2007 at 01:27 pm

Right now I'm waiting for my handyman to come and paint the ceiling. (Hope it's not TOO long, I am taking off work for this.)

Yesterday I spent $1 for bottled water from the vending machine. So unlike me; I rarely buy water. Water is free! But I had gone for a diet coke, and the machine said "Make another selection." I pressed all the buttons for diet drinks and nothing came out. I pressed the water button, not expecting to get one, but I did. So I had a $1 bottle of water. Oh well, better for me than the diet coke, I'm sure, but I could have got water from the fountain.

I also bought a new book of stamps and some ones. $8.30. The raise in stamp prices snuck up on me. I still have more than half a book of the old ones to use up.

One of my colleagues wants to look at my house next Monday. He was assuming I didn't have a realtor yet, so I wonder if he is looking for a great deal. I can't afford to give him a great deal! I need one myself!

Yesterday I got a flyer from a car dealer with a scratch-off contest. Whoo-hee I was the grand prize winner! It was a little hard throwing it away. I know it is a scam, but it is easy to see how people get sucked into this. The thought that you MIGHT be a winner is so compelling.

    I thought the article on the Home page here was informative about home inspections. It might be beneficial to you to have someone check out your house before you sell it. It would be better for you to repair now rather than wait later when your potential buyers send in their own inspectors and then try to haggle you down. Good luck in your venture.

    Sometimes you can put that in a contract with a realtor that if you make first contact with a potential buyer, the percentage is less. That is what we are doing with oldest daughter's house (that we own half of). Your post kicked me in the butt to call someone who had expressed interest in it, when I mentioned we were selling.
