The drywall around my house has stains and paint lumps (overall a dirty look), especially around the trims.

Any quick and easy way to make it look clean and well-finished?

You can sand it down. If you don’t want to do it yourself reach out to any drywall specialist and they’ll sand and retexture

I had big problems painting over bad dry wall. Redo it or call a specialist. Try to sand it down with an electric sander.

We bought a 2bd condo 5-6 years back for 300k which has increased to 500k now - approx 10% annual return. Do not plan to sell it. Thinking of buying another condo in same complex for for 550k, which has appreciated in the value the same way.. 300k to 550k in last 5 years. Not sure how far it can grow... but have had decent returns so far. Should we wait or pull the trigger?both are investment properties.


At what pt in the transaction is the furniture for a home sold/moved? Had a buyer walk the day before closing so a bit paranoid about this time around. With the last buyer, they were going inherit the furniture so this wasn’t an issue, but the new buyer does not want it so trying to have them allow me to sell it (for 2-3 days) after closing day so I’m not shit out of luck. The property is an airbnb, so if i sell everything and this new buyer walks, I’m screwed as i’ll have to pay $3400 a month.
