I wanted to use this page as a private space for you to see how the house looks before and after cleaning, fixes, painting, etc. Only you two can see this page because of the password.
As far as renting it out vs. selling it - here is my suggestion. Go talk to Betsy to get a guesstimate of your closing costs for selling. She & I have a great title person to speak with as well if you want. After that, speak to your accountant about your tax picture. It might make more sense to sell or rent because of your taxes.
Before you scroll down, remember that the house is amazing. The photos will only show the negatives but the house is really amazing. Really. We are going to get it to shine and look even better.
My suggestions below are based on two things: 1. You are selling & 2. You have a big bucket of cash just sitting around to pay for these suggestions.
Let's say that I am wrong and there is no bucket, then no worries. Just look at the list as a wish list and you can pick the items you feel you want to spend money on.

Theoretically when we're done the home's palette will be something like this:
