Okay I did a thread search and didn't find anything that matches, so I will pose some questions for the Great Throbbing Brain here.
As some of you may have picked up on. I am looking at buying a house. I have met with the realtor and will be out looking at houses soon enough. There was one that caught my eye though, it is in great shape, but needs some work. Meaning the new exterior paint is turqouise, and the new carpeting is of a magenta hue. Everything else is up-to-date and looks good, it is on a corner lot and it'll fit nicely for my needs.
My Questions are:
Paint: It is new and I would keep it if I lived in Florida or someplace tropical, but not in Colorado, where earthtones dominate.
-How much would it be to repaint? That is, if I hired someone.
-Would any of you recommend painting it myself? I have experience doing this and I wouldn't mind a project this summer.
-As for the carpet, it would be a couple thousand dollars to have someone redo it, right? I feel bad because it is new, but in my opinion it is hideous.
-What if I installed laminate flooring? The price I can afford if I do it a little at a time, but is it easy to do for someone with minor construction skills?
Any help is greatly appreciated and this will also keep me from getting bored when all my work is done later... (don't tell the boss)
Thanks in advance...
