now wheres the tinder hoes?
Had the first offer on our farm today. They offered 15% below asking, wanted the fridge, washer, and dryer thrown in, plus wanted a bunch of other farm work thrown in, and said that was their only offer and that they would not entertain any counter offers.
Apparently they have been looking for 7 years and this was their first offer on a property. We told them thanks for the offer and best of luck.
Also, I guess their realtor was fed up with their shit and quit
How big's your farm?
What realtor would put it up with someone looking for 7 years.
I felt bad that my realtor had been taking us to properties for 3 months probably 10 in total and the house we settled on I found. The fact that he told me about this escalation addendum made him very valuable.
we took for 4 months. 11 offers. Looked at probably 30ish houses in person.
All of our offers were at or above asking though and our realtor blew one deal, so I don’t feel bad about it.
1 day, 9 houses, 1 offer.
I would have been worn out. Productive day though.
Other than making sure I remember what wire/color goes where, how hard is it to update a thermostat? I am not doing a nest/wifi type one, just a regular programmable one thats not from like 1985
That’s pretty much it. But why not just get a WiFi enabled theromostat?
It's really easy, just take a picture of it but the colors are universal.
I had Honeywell wifi one at my old house. It wasn’t as “smart” as nest/ecobee but it was like $90 and had a phone app to control it anywhere and thats all I wanted. Probably a tad more difficult to configure it but their support was amazing and walked me through it quickly.
My new house came with Honeywell lyrics and they were trash, so the builder replaced them with Lennox units made by Honeywell and they were worse. I finally just bought ecobee’s myself since I loved them so much at my last house and now all is well again.
Don’t really have a good reason other than I was just being “cheap” (see username) and figured it wasn’t a huge deal to go the old school route of pushing an arrow up or down.
Got it cause a. Cheap and B. The original thermostat looked exactly the same but this had wifi so I figured itd be an easy swap
Trust me and anyone with a wifi thermostat feeling hot/cold when you’re about to go to sleep and being able to adjust without getting up is awesome. Not to mention peace of mind if you go on vacation and think you forgot to turn it up.
**Currently have a non wifi thermostat due to Trane ac not compatible and it sucks
Learning thermostat has more then paid for itself for me within a year.
Damn maybe I’ll run and take the one I got back and exchange it for a WiFi one.
I guess I just figured it’s NBD to turn it up/down a little when I leave for work, and then change it back when I get home from work.
And yet every time you forget, it costs you money. As soon as my phone disconnects from my WiFi, my Nest puts my AC in power saving mode.
Nah, just describing my effortless house-hunting experience.
I assume if your WiFi goes down while you’re not at home, the temp just holds?
It still runs the schedule
Correct. Without WiFi it’s just a really expensive thermostat but it still works.
Went to turn on the water outside to pressure wash my deck last night... Water isn't coming out of the spigot, it's coming out of the wall.
Fuck man that sucks. Sorry.
That isn't a huge issue as long as you can get to it from inside the house behind the drywall. Seems like some water froze and cracked the line between the stop and the end of the spigot, did you have a freeze with your hose still connected?
Yea, I don't think it will be a big deal honestly, just more a pain in the ass. The line goes into my utility room/laundry room (live in a bi-level). There is no drywall in that room so the water line is easily accessible for the plumber.
getting bids to get my walnut tree removed. the first bid was $4,200 and the next one was $1,850. the variance between bids kills me
Apples, er, walnuts to walnuts comparison? Did they both bid removing the tree from your property or stump grinding?
it was the exact same bid. removal and stump grinding
I also got a bid last week for $2,800
That's crazy, I wonder if the expensive company either has to rent a lot of equipment or just doesn't have time for the job so they bid high.
I'm sure you know this but just make sure whomever you hire is bonded/insured in case they damage your house.
it’s a pretty high quality black walnut tree and I’m looking to see if I can find an interested buyer
I don't blame you. My parents have a ~40ft tall black walnut and I spent a lot of time in high school picking up those stupid things.
mine is about 75' tall and 8' around
I had no fucking clue it was a walnut tree or else I wouldn’t have bought the house
I got a big ass oak tree removed (with stump grinding and haul away) for $1,200 a few weeks ago. I don’t know if that helps
are you in nebraska still?
I'll take an 8' section of the trunk if you're offering free delivery
Yes, Tree Services of Omaha was the company I used.
does anyone know how to sell a walnut tree though
Let it Go app?
The market in KC has been bananas the last 2-3 years. Seems like half of prairie village, mission, etc corridor is under remodel, being fixed up for rental or being sold. Also laughed at bright colored door comment. So many bright orange fucking doors lol
I need to remember to share the story of when I paid a company to trim my tree Bc the city said my tree branches were hanging too low.
I checked and there’s only like 25 houses on the market priced between $150k-$225k. That’s insane
I believe it. Not going to find anything for that unless its in the older part of Olathe, in Gardner, or the northlands in KCMO. Probably wouldnt even find any townhouses,condos.
I bought my house south of Waldo for $152k. I want to sell it realllllly bad
What's market for it now?
