Here We Go Again

Our offer on the next house was accepted, now on to the P&S. 

Closing is scheduled for the end of September which gives the Mr. time to button up things at our house.

Yes, another ranch. Nice corner lot of almost half an acre. Great neighborhood.

Notice there is no garage. Our realtor says the house will be easier to sell with a garage, but that proposition is more complicated than one might imagine. The main challenge (and cost) is the roof line. So we have decided to do everything except the front of the house first and leave the garage as a decision at the end when we see how much we have spent.
 A couple of debates already. Realtor and the Mr. think the front door should go. I find it charming.

There is also debate about the cast iron bathtub. Getting rid of it will be a total pain, but, sadly, it is pink. Now I think that we can work around a pink bathtub, but our realtor is adamant that it will sour potential buyers. Thoughts?
