I told the dotter I was going to be proactive, starting my buyer's remorse on the way back from closing. BR is inevitable - you commit the rest of your life to a huge mortgage, complicate your taxes, assume monthly bills or PITA, electricity, water, sewage, trash collection, and everyday maintenance. You're going to morse and remorse.
Then there are the little problems not found during walkthroughs and inspections. The washing machine drains into a double deep sink which backs up and leaks. There was no washer during walkthrough, so we didn't find that one. The water connection for the refrigerator is a female. The connector on the fridge is also female. No worries, buy the appropriate adapter and march on. However, we bought the wrong fitting. When the dotter pulled the fridge out, she gouged the linoleum.
The dotter was already upset because the hot water fixture on the shower/bath spun and spun and didn't open. She started to day with a cold shower, I'm guessing 55°F, so she started the day cranky. That one was within my skill set, so I fixed it and got a hug.
We need to replace a lot of electrical outlets because whoever painted the house did not remove the plates nor tape over the sockets. Some of the outlets are two-prong with no ground.
