These are fuses for the electrical system of a house. Most homes that you see these days have been updated to circuit breakers, so finding fuse boxes becomes less common each year. It’s okay to want to buy a house that has fuses, but you should plan for them to be upgraded. Perhaps you’ll be able to convince the seller to deal with them before the closing. That’s unfortunately not always possible though, so just make a mental note as you’re evaluating the property.
The Greater Hartford Real Estate Blog turns 2 today. Kyle and I took a few moments to celebrate this milestone and even bought the blog a cake! The blog loves chocolate, and definitely appreciated the generous frosting and shavings.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of our readers. Hopefully the blog is both interesting and entertaining. We both enjoy writing about real estate and are glad to have found an audience.
My blog is in the process of being redesigned. The purpose of the redesign is to give the site a more professional feel, display pictures in a larger format, and still make it easy for you to find things and contact me. No more pictures of Amy on the blog site, but lots of pictures of the surrounding areas in Greater Hartford.
Please be patient, as some design features will be changing in the upcoming weeks. At this point, mostly the stuff linked on the menu bar. My AmyBergquist website is fairly lame and needs some tweaking as well. Don’t worry, the blog content will remain fabulous, as always. *tongue in cheek humor here, guys*
I will ask for your help during the process though. If you come across things that are broken or just don’t seem right, please email me. Let me know the problem, and the web browser you’re using. I’d like to fix all badness. Thanks for your help and thanks for reading!
