Hello everybody! We’ve recently purchased a new house, and I cannot say that we are pretty happy with our choice after living here for the first month. We are first-time home buyers, and I think that we’ve made a mistake with purchasing this place. I guess we just weren’t careful enough when we looked at this place. Because in the beginning, we thought that this house is perfect and the price is affordable. We are like idiots who believed that this is a sign. We just didn’t know that a low price in a lovely neighborhood is a bad sign.
Obviously, we hired a home inspector to check out the place if it has fungus, mildew, or any insects. Everything seemed fine. We didn’t have any problems like that. Besides, the house itself was clean, and previous owners replaced old carpets. We didn’t notice any weird odor or anything like that. So, we thought that we are lucky enough to get this place, and after checking some other houses, we’ve decided that this one is the best. The neighborhood seemed friendly. The rooms are spacious enough, and a lovely garden in the backyard. Seems perfect for a young couple who has just started their family.
We quickly brought all our belongings there, and some furniture from the place we’ve rented before. On our first night, we decided to put on an air conditioner because the night was hot. But some weird odor was coming out from it. Obviously, we didn’t notice it before, since we didn’t testes any appliances. I don’t think this odor is okay, and I thought that maybe something died inside there. Do you know if this can be fixed? Or is it better to get a new one? I found a lot of positive reviews about a company for a/c installation. But I’m not sure if the people there can fix it first. Besides, we are really tight on a budget, since we also need to replace the fridge, dishwasher and washing machine. All appliances leak and I’m unsure if we can apply for another credit since all our savings went for the house deposit. Besides, the house needs some improvements.
Maybe there are some ways to fix everything myself?
