I know it sounds a bit petty, but I almost didn’t buy my apartment because of the ugly air vent covers.
I took one look at the air vent covers as well as I almost gagged.
They may have been nice when they were new, but you could see where the paint had peeled as well as rust was shining through. I asked if they could upgrade the air vent covers before I moved in, but the present owner was not hearing any of this. I knew he was right about my installing my own air vent covers, but they were high-priced. By the time I upgraded every air vent cover in the house, I was looking at over $1000 as well as I didn’t have that kind of money. I then asked if he would be willing to take $1000 off the purchase price as well as he laughed. I almost asked why he was getting rid of the beach house but I didn’t need to. My realtor stepped up as well as asked the question for me. He was selling the beach house for almost $300,000 as well as he couldn’t afford to take $1000 off the selling price. She thought that either the seller, or his realtor were just being stubborn. We were told the beach house was worth twice the much as well as they thought I was being petty. When I found out that there was a problem with termites as well as stress cracks in the foundation, I was glad I had tried to argue over the air vent covers. My realtor told myself and others the people I was with and I may have made a sizable mistake in that purchase.
