Selling the House: Renovations

A big piece of the puzzle when it comes to the move is selling our house.  We bought a property as an investment 2.5 years ago and now we are getting ready to sell.  We’ve lived in the house and fixed it up over time, knowing that it was not our “forever” house and that we would make some money on the resale.

The Before and Afters speak for themselves.

The second master was half carpeted/half wood.  The wood was damaged so we pulled it all up and re-carpeted, painted and changed the closet door.
