We’ve sold 2 homes and bought 3. We always sell FSBO and always buy foreclosures. This last home we bought had been on the market for over a year and a friend told me about it. They were willing to negotiate drastically. When I sell a home, I go through and make a list of everything that needs to be done before putting it on the market. I am very anal about it! Ask my husband. So, I decided to make a list for my home, before we ever put it up for sale. NO, we’re not selling or putting it up on the market anytime soon…never if I have anything to do with it. We’ve moved about 13 times in 13 years. I don’t want to move again unless someone wants to give me a house on Kauai…or Maui…actually I’ll take a house on any of the 8 islands of Hawaii.
So I made a list of things I’d like to get done. It helps me to see it in black and white and to be able to check off each project. It’s an easy way to attack projects to be done. I simply get overwhelmed if I don’t do this. I know…our homes are always a work in progress. I just want to get a few things done. I’ve yet to touch my master bedroom and bath. Those deserve notebooks all on their own…not lists.
How do you attack projects to be done? Do you go room to room and make a list?
