But at the start of my junior year, decided to work my way through college.)

— Deferred Maintenance (COMMENT: If your childhood home is suffering from deferred maintenance, why is that? My childhood home (1286 Wood Street in Crete) is suffering from deferred maintenance because those who have lived in it have had less money. My grandparents on my father’s side had the home built in 1926 and lived in it until 1954. Their daughter (my aunt) lived in it 1930-1954. Their son (my father) lived in it 1926-1945 and 1954-1969. My mother lived in it 1954-2016. I lived in it 1954-1972. My brother lived in it 1954-2022. My grandparents and my parents had less money because my father fought brittle type 1 diabetes from childhood. Because of that, he never attended college and never earned more than $50,000/year in today’s dollars. My mother never attended high school, and because of that, she stayed home and raised my brother and I and she did not earn any kind of salary until after her husband died in 1969. My mother’s income has always been very limited. Because of the aforesaid, my application for a financial hardship draft deferment was approved in 1971. Further, my brother’s income has always been very limited. Further, tragically, negative trends in the home’s neighborhood and in Crete have discouraged maintenance. In relative terms, average household income and home value have dropped substantially. Consequently, I have agreed to offer the home for sale for far less than the value that Zillow and the tax assessor give it. While it has four bedrooms, a full basement, two-car detached garage, and an outstanding concrete front porch, it has only one bathroom. I hope that the purchaser replaces all of the home’s plumbing and electricity, insulates its walls, adds central air conditioning, replaces its front concrete steps, replaces its garage doors, replaces its roof, replaces its storm windows and screens, replaces its living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, and bathroom floor coverings, replaces its kitchen sink, refrigerator and stove, replaces its toilet and bathtub, etc.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Deferred maintenance refers to necessary maintenance, repairs and upgrades or replacements that are put on hold until sometime in the future. Maintenance and repairs may be postponed for a number of reasons, but the most common cause is the lack of necessary funds needed to complete a project. Ironically, the result of deferred maintenance is usually more costly than if the projects are not postponed.)
