While I thought that I was going to be done renovations for the year, I decided that there was one rental property in our portfolio that needed a little work.  It was our second property that we bought a few years ago, and at the time we had planned to do some renovations, but there was not enough money left in our pockets.  Now, a few years later, we had the means to make some real changes to the home, so we decided to do it.

But since I don’t have any real skills when it comes to home improvements, I decided to call in a home improvement company in downriver Michigan.  We had worked with them a couple of other times, so I knew that they would do a good job and get it done in a timely fashion.  Ideally I wanted to be able to rent the home out before the first of the month, so we needed to get the work underway.

As it turned out, they were able to get the work done in less time than they had quoted and cheaper than we had expected.  The facelift will allow us to rent out the property for a little more than before, and I think that whomever we find as a tenant will be happy to call it home.
