Selling vs Remodeling Series part 2
It's hard not to stay in this house when I know, every spring, my tulips will bloom, the trees will come to life and I can sit in the back yard relaxing...FINALLY...after the winter we just had! But the reality is, this bungalow is small! Small as in 1844 square feet kind of small. Don't get me wrong, I do love my boys with all my heart, but sometimes a women needs some space! In this old 1945 house, there is no closet, (walk-in, coat or linen for that matter), there is no pantry or master bathroom and surely no escape for mom in this little home!
So, we have been here for 5 years already! And we bought this home because it has charm. We walked in and our hearts felt warm. Some people thought we might be crazy to think we could live without closet space, but the hearts were WARM people, WARM. Plus, the seller baked cookies every time we came to see the home! Smart sellers because we fell in love with it and bought it!
I dream of closets, aside from the tulips, the spacious yard we have, I can't help it! I need a closet. How much do I have to spend to buy a home with a master closet??? In Holladay City, the average home price in 84124 during the 1st quarter of 2016 was 420,000.00. This is up 29.03% since last year. The median home price last year was 325,500.00.
What if we add a second story???
