Like most home sellers in a flat market, we agreed with our realtor that a few "cosmetic renovations" to our house would make it more attractive to buyers. The goal is to make it so incredibly fabulous, it will sell quickly, and therefore reduce the stress of having the house "show ready" for a long period of time. We agreed to a dollar amount, and decided on a few key updates that would bring our house out of the era of the Brady Bunch and into the twenty-first century.
It sounded so good at the time, but now I'm wondering if we have just traded one stress for another.
Yes, I'm sure it WILL look fabulous. I must admit I am not ONE BIT SAD to say goodbye to my blue kitchen floor tile (just sad I won't get to enjoy the new floor for very long!). In the meantime, I wonder where Dennis plans to take us for dinner tonight (and tomorrow night, and the next night after that)? Can you smell my dust? ACK!
And another slight snag: Found out yesterday that the paint that has been painted in almost every room of the house was the WRONG COLOR (see it cut in above the wainscot on the wall?). I am not that picky (hey, I'm moving outta here!) and I would have left it, but the contractor is having the painters paint it ALL OVER AGAIN (I'm certain I had a teensy little heart attack when I heard that news). Can you smell my paint, too?
Focus on the goal, remember???
