I have been looking at whether or not I am going to be able to buy this little house. It used to belong to the grandfather of one of my friends. There are a few small things wrong with the house, but I am thinking that it is going to need a new roof. I am not really sure and no one is exactly sure when it was last replace. I have been calling to get quotes on the cost of roof replacement in Brooklyn NY. That is one of the really major factors in whether or not it is going to be a good deal for me or not. You have to figure out what it is going to cost you over the long haul, because there is going to be a lot more to it than just the initial cost of the home. You mostly have to think about the mechanicals of the home. That means the HVAC mostly, the heating and the cooling systems of the home. I was really looking closely at the heat pump. The house has a gas heating system, it seems to work beautifully and I am thinking that it is going to be fine. However the heat pump looks to be really old and I am thinking that it might not work all that well over the long haul. Since I do not need it for heat, the obvious question is what it would cost to replace it as an air conditioner. It seems like that is probably going to be around twenty five hundred dollars, since this is a rather small home and you do not have to have a huge system to cool a place this size. Other than that there is nothing wrong with the house that can not be fixed rather easily.
