I thought I found the home I had been looking for. I put a bid in for it yesterday. This morning my realtor called me and said "you know, this house has in-ground oil heat." Not knowing any better I told him I didn't mind..... ....that is, until I talked with my co-workers who essentially warned me about going with in-ground oil heating. Some of the problems brought up were tank deterioration which causes leakage, etc. I'm now leaning towards cancelling my bid on the house as I don't want to have to deal with in-ground oil heat. Even before I buy the house I'd have to pay someone to test it and/or have it emptied and raised above ground. Gas heat seems like the better way to go. Your thoughts?
