Renovating your own home can be a great experience or a completely overwhelming one that breaks the bank.

There are strategies you can use to ensure that you create a beautiful place to live without spending too much money.

In this episode, I am going back to basics and covering some of the core principles of renovating for profit. It is important to go over the foundation topics from time to time.
