Over the last couple of weeks we’ve been doing little updates here and there to get the house prepped to sell. I’m happy to say that we were able to cross everything off our list! There were a few “would be nice” things on our list that we didn’t get to but they weren’t really necessary. We’ve got one last deep clean before pictures are taken and then the house will be listed Friday… WOW! So exciting and crazy all at the same time. I’ve actually been pretty anxious about the whole process but here’s to hoping everything goes smoothly. Baby steps Brooke… I will say that this market has us feeling pretty confident about the condition of our house and hoping it sells fast!
To-Do list, most recent updates in pink…

(?) Optional tasks that we didn’t get to.
We wanted to replace the light bulbs because they’re the energy efficient ones and can take a min or two to light up a room. We still may swap them out before actually moving. Scott said he wanted to take them with him… hmm. As for painting the deck… After power washing the deck, it looked so much better! We figured save the money and put it towards the new house. Power washing makes such a huge difference though. We did it to our front driveway too and it really gave it a nice, clean look.
Getting serious over here, y’all!!!
