Putting Our House on the Market

Hey there!  I have mentioned a time or two that we have been working hard to get our house ready to sell.  Well I have an update: we have finally decided to list this April!  That means we have a little more than a month to put the final touches on everything before strangers walk through our house and critique our hard work 🙂

For the past few months we have decluttered the entire house, including the garage.  I lost count at the amount of donations we gave away.  The guest room is practically empty!  It feels good.  I have to admit, I love a clean slate.  Now that we have rid ourselves of the things that aren’t coming with us, it’s time to get down to business on the small repairs that are still needed.  Unfortunately it has been rainy practically every weekend lately, so we haven’t been able to do anything outside.  There are just a few tasks left to complete, thankfully 🙂

What’s Left:
-Touch up paint (inside)
-Repair water damage under kitchen sink
-Repair patio door
-Fix mailbox
-Paint mailbox
-Caulk exterior (as needed)
-Paint front porch railing
-Paint patio doors
-Paint front door/trim
-Paint garage/trim
-Plant flowers/clean up yard
-Freshen up mulch
-Stage, stage, stage!

It doesn’t seem like too much, but with all the rain PLUS my husband going out of town for several days, it will be a miracle that we get it all finished in time.  Hopefully it will all be worth it and we get a great offer!

Wish us luck 😉
