There are certain home improvements that you should just leave to professionals. Here’s a story about one of those.
Welcome to another edition of “Story Time With Gary.” Today I want to talk to you about a home improvement gone wrong.
Years ago, one of my agents had a client who invited her over to see the house and take a look. She went through the house and once they got to the master bathroom, he mentioned that he had heated floors.
“There are certain home improvements that you should just leave to professionals. “
That wasn’t very common back then, so she asked a few questions and they got to talking about how he installed them. It turns out that he took electric blankets, laid them down, and put tile on top of them. In case you aren’t very handy yourself, this is not a good idea. It is a great fire hazard, however.
As a completely unrelated aside, this client was actually very famous in San Diego for doing something very strange. I don’t really want to put it out to the world here, but if you want to know who it was, send me an email at Gary@garykent.com or give me a call. If you need help buying or selling a home, I’d love to hear from you as well.
