I have finally gotten my own place and it was less of an ordeal than I expected it to be. The house is tiny, even smaller than the apartment that I had been living in, but this is a good thing since I have less floor space that needs to be decorated. All of the stuff that I have in my apartment mostly ended up on the curb or in the dumpster. It just was not worth the effort to move it. I need to find stuff like rugs for sale at a discount, because I do not have a lot of cash on hand. The furniture is where I spent most of the money. I needed a new bed already and I could not believe how much that cost me. Then I had to get a sofa and a recliner, but I had to go in debt to get them. I thought about getting something that was used after I saw how much that was going to cost me.
In due time the house is going to need a bit of renovation. The kitchen and the bathroom are both rather out of date and worn out. The house was built a very long time ago and so it was not really set up for modern conveniences. All of that costs a good bit of money and obviously I am not going to put more money in it than I can get back out when it is time to sell. In fact the big thing about a home’s value is location and the homes that surround it. That can not be changed by your own actions and so you have to act within certain constraints when you are thinking about improving the resale value of a house that you own.
