Jack found the place and I looked it over. When you pulled up the curb, the place looked just awful and we did not think it would be worth the effort. However when we went in and did a thorough inspection. The shutters were terrible for example, but we took them down and repaired them in no time flat. They look awesome now. I put in some new vinyl windows myself and then put vinyl siding on a detach garage. That thing looked as though it should have been burned down when we saw it, but there was not anything wrong with it that could not be fixed with relative ease. We had it looking terrific in no time. We figured out that the roof is good for about six years longer, but a big tree limb had done a little damage to one corner. I had to go up there and fix it. You would have thought that there would have been some water damage from this, but apparently it was recent enough that very little rain had fallen since.
At any rate we have to put some carpet down and now that all of the renovation is done I am going to sand and polish the hardwood floors. I am going to put up a ceiling fan and then we are going to add a few smart home features. There will be a splash to that, it is going to impress the potential buyer. It is not really going to come with a big price tag. We think that we shall be done in a few weeks. Of course me and a guy we use for carpentry are staying here. I do this all of the time. I have a camper trailer out in the driveway with all of my stuff in it.
