Creating a beautiful bedroom is a healthy thing to do. It's refreshing and life-changing to clean out what we no longer need, freshen with new paint, and find the perfect furniture arrangement.
Molly had to move for health reasons. As much as she loved Denver and her classic little bungalow, she couldn't live there any longer without being attached to her oxygen tank. In order to prolong and improve the quality of her life, it was time to move to a lower elevation.
Molly wanted to maximize the return on the investment in her home, and was willing to spend a little money to spruce it up in the hopes that it would bring a higher sales price.
On first inspection, every room was like this bedroom: outdated and cluttered. Before putting it on the market, there was work to do.
After seeing the results, the realtor raised the listing price $15,000 over what she’d originally suggested. The house went on the market and had three offers within the first three weeks, a contract and a back-up (at a higher price than the first contract). The house closed in one month (in 2008) during a slow time in the real estate market.
Molly moved north just in time to close on her new house, and is now off oxygen, enjoying more time with her grandkids, and happily living in another period bungalow even more beautiful than the one she sold.
