well done. That's the way to do it.
People sometimes make the mistake on spending too much on renovations and don't see a return.
I wouldn't spend more than 10% of the property value (unless you are extending etc).
We just bought a cheap department of housing house.
We put new carpet, new kitchen floor, painted about half the house, painted all the skirtings, architraves and doors (looks great but was a pain), new light fittings, new toilet and vanity put in AC, cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more. Cost $6,000.
Added $20-30K to the value. Not bad for 5 days work. We are renting it. We will now get $30-40 a week more rent.
Have to strongly agree about decluttering. I know I tend to look at the clutter when looking at houses. You are going to move so why not pack stuff up a little earlier. Also take photos down. You want people want to envisage THEM living in it. When we sold our last house we had boxes packed away. We hadn't unpacked them months after moving so we just had a garage sale and sold it all. If we didn't need it in 6 months we didn't need it.
