We faced a water leak in our condo while we were out at dinner and found out because it started leaking into our downstairs neighbor’s unit. Cost 20k to fix and that was when we discovered our insurance was insufficient. Thankfully had the cash on hand but that one hurt.

Oh wow.

I’d breath a deep sigh of relief for “only” an $1100 repair on a water main. Even if it’s outside the residence rather than inside, which I’m not sure it is based on your info, anything with water can get expensive quick or inconvenient. My dad once had the water main break at the meter and it took a week to repair. It was on the city’s side, but living a week with no water is not exactly ideal. I have another friend that had the main break in his basement right before the in-home shut off valve and that got expensive quick. Bottom line, just be glad you found it before it was something more serious. Gotta have H2O to live, but man can it cause $$$$$ problems quick.

Ha, “down the drain” - nice one…. If intentional 👀

Oh young Jedi you’re just getting started. 😂 Wait until you need a new AC compressor. 6k-8k. Or a roof as mentioned - 20k-30k. Want to add wood floors? 12k. Update your bathrooms? 25k. New kitchen? 40k. Etc etc.

I’d imagine that if you’re buying a $6M condo, an extra $300k probably won’t be breaking the bank.

Yep. Just got a bill for $8k to address water intrusion. Doors/windows need to be reinstalled and some masonry repairs done. I keep a lot more tucked away now than I did in my 20s.
