My husband and I just inherited a house. The in-laws passed on – the FIL died at the house. The furnishings are removed and the hideous colors and decorative items my MIL had are gone. We didn’t want the house to live in but now we think we may be changing our minds. A little paint and the place will polish up nicely. I know I can make the house a home. Still, it was the in-laws house and they were nasty people. We had the house cleansed and blessed to remove any ‘varmints’ so that won’t be an issue.
What to do. I welcome your comments/suggestions.
If you want to sell it fast go with people who buy old and unwanted property.
They pay cash for the houses and you keep the money.
If you really feel that way about the house sell it fast.
But, what fun you would have had to flip it and make it a proper home.
Good luck in whatever you try to do. BTW, Property Brothers are on all day today
All the best!
Rent it out since you weren’t a fan of the in-laws.
Burn white candles, walk through the house with one burnig, into every room.
By blessing the house evey thing will be fine,
It will be your home, may you find peace and joy in it.
The blessings will help. :smileyhappy:
Sorry for your loss.
I have not been on a lot in the past 2 days I never saw this post.
I think what you did was the right thing. I am a HGTV ADDICT!
I love to look how to renovate a house you inherited. There are so many great ideas.
If you watch the Propterty Brothers and Fixer Upper which may be on Demand you
can see and get great ideas.
I want to flip a house myself.
Is the house a Craftsman? Does it have open concept? How many bedrooms?
Start with the Kitchen first that is what I would do. If you can do most of the work
yourself you will come out fine. But, when it comes to HVAC and Plumbing you need
a pro. HSN has some HGTV products and they have an expert right here.
Check your TV Guide for HGTV and look and see what is coming on.
Also is the house a 2 story or all on one level. I wish I were in your shoes.
If you can afford to spend a little money let an expert come in and do some of the work.
Please let me know how you come out. Sorry I did not see this sooner.
I am reading a book this week by the Property Brothers. I will keep you posted.
Have a great day.
Irenee – Seems like you’ve done all the important things to clean and cleanse the house. Now it’s up to you to pick YOUR colors for paint, carpeting, flooring, etc. The furniture that YOU pick and the added paintings and touches will truly make this your home. Same goes for the outside of the house. Cleaning and painting it what you like will make it more comfortable. Best of luck in YOUR NEW HOME!:womanhappy:
I think you already provided your own answer 🙂 “I know I can make this house a home” !!!
And I’m sure the house will be more than happy to have you and your husband ! The nastiness is all gone now………….
Good Luck 🙂
Was so hoping SOMEONE WOULD REPLY.
