It was easy taking early retirement plus getting out of the zone controlled heating, ventilation, plus A/C of my corporate office; Okay, maybe easy is overstating it a bit, then the retirement package couldn’t be beat! Staying around another 8 or 9 years would get myself and others maybe 4 percent more for my trouble.
- So I took the offer plus cleared out my office that even had its own thermostat.
The fact of the matter is that 57 is awfully young to just call it quits; plus, I just actually did not want to be that guy who went condo after retirement plus stuck his feet up in the central air conditioner for the rest of his life… I had seen this happen to some of my colleagues plus even to my own father to some extent. I actually wanted to stay active plus follow my passions while also earning a living. So getting into the rental property game was suddenly absolutely appealing once I was able to retire at 57, but my fiance plus I had consistently sort of enjoyed the renovations in each condo my friend and I lived in. So my friend and I took our talents to smaller starter homes that were primarily just more than one family room but needed work. My pal and I were able to do most of the renovations except for things like the heating plus cooling equipment. Stuff such as that my friend and I left to the central heating, ventilation, plus A/C professionals, and but my friend and I got surprised on one of our first properties when my friend and I did not realize the ductwork was also shot. So that meant that my friend and I were going to incur a whole lot more cost. But the heating, ventilation, plus A/C company actually saved us by finally suggesting my friend and I use 3 ductless heat pumps instead. I have to say that my friend and I may go with ductless heat pumps in the rest of our rental properties because it has worked out so well.
