Our homework over the weekend was collecting prices , a.m.a. walking the aisles at Lowes amongst pad together with pencil. We’ve tweaked and crunched too contrary engineered all the figures to run into if we tin can make coin , in addition to everything points to a yeah. 

Frugal homnestaging together with flipping a property profitably will hateful hours amongst your reckoner. 

Checking the mindset  

As excited every bit I am well-nigh the possibility of commencement a new rehab in addition to staging project , I
take to act fairly cool most the possible purchase because I don't want Mr. Lucky to think I'one thousand not existence totally realistic , businesslike , calculating , unattached. If he suspects I’one thousand too emotional well-nigh the purchase , it'll simply brand him live more than cool headed in addition to reluctant. You know , to remainder me.

Do other couples play this game?

I'thousand really hoping nosotros can place it together because it'sec totally win/win: getting to do what we enjoy , and brand money , too!

Finally , nosotros submitted the offering. And directly , nosotros’re waiting.

Meanwhile , I’ve collected all our pages of calculations too price projections and lay them inward a release-foliage binder inwards a section marked “Budget too Estimates.” I’ve added sections for “Measurements in addition to Specifications ,” as well as for “Staging.” 

I’one thousand trying difficult non to go ahead of myself because nosotros don’t take a deal , but I tin can’t help envisioning that cute lilliputian 1270-foursquare foot condo prepare correct in addition to dressed upward for buyers. 

I’ll live disappointed if all parties tin can’t agree on a toll that will operate for us.  We took the toll Ms. Speedy idea nosotros could become afterwards we described what we wanted to do , and so deducted all our projected costs in addition to what we’d similar to earn , to go far at our offer toll. Fingers crossed.
