When I was out previewing new construction homes in Spring Texas for a buyer, I saw something I had never seen before. Located in the backyard, right outside the home’s breakfast room window were two big air conditioners.
I have seen air conditioners before but not air conditioners located in a home’s backyard. So I wondered what could have possibly possessed the builder to place the air conditioners in what seems like such an illogical place to me?
Drainage was the answer I received. Due to the small amount of space between homes, the side yards were not properly draining. The builder decided the least expensive way to resolve the drainage problem was to relocate the air conditioners from the side yard to the backyard.
I am not a home builder just a home owner but I can think of other ways to resolve drainage issues because in my opinion air conditioners should be neither seen nor heard. If you are a light sleeper or don’t want a view of air conditioners, check to see where the home’s air conditioners are located before you enter into a real estate contract on a home.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
