Our Project List for Selling Our Home

The time is fast approaching that we need to get the Vineyard House on the market, so in addition to banging away at existing projects, Jordan and I have been making a master list of to-do’s before we officially go on the market.

Even though it is a seller’s market right now, we still want our home to present as well as possible. Below is our in-depth to-do list. A lot of these items are specific to our house, and most of it involves finishing projects that we started.
