After a lot of debate with my wife, we have decided that we are going to sell our vacation house. It is located in California, and it has been a great house for a number of years. We were depressed when the housing market hit rock bottom, and thought we were going to end up selling it for next to nothing. But, we need the money now, and the market is rebounding, so we are going to fix it up. My wife has wanted to put shutters on the house for a long time, because she thinks that it would look really awesome.
I kind of agree, but more importantly for me, is the fact that I think that it will help us to sell the house for more money, once it is finished being fixed up, and is ready to go on the market. Hopefully, it will not take that much time to do all of this. I have taken some time off of work, and I have flown out to the vacation house. I am going to be here for a week or two, to try to do as much as I can to get it fixed up.
I am going to try to schedule an appointment for a contractor to install the shutters we want soon, because the house was just recently painted on the interior. So it seems like a good time to do that. But maybe, I should wait until the new carpet is put in. I do not know if that process would have a chance of damaging the new shutters. I do not think that it would, but it might be best to be safe, rather than take any chances, when there is so much money on the line and we are trying to make a profit.
