*--* VIDEO NOTE *--*
The linked video is from July 2022 when the house went on the market to sell. Since then we put over $30k into the house to upgrade it for rental. The video was taken before the kitchen and bathroom were redone on the Main Floor and before the laminate flooring was installed in the Basement, replacing the carpeting.

We took the house off the market as it begin to collapse with the rise in interest rates and when we realized selling the house would penalize us as parents of a college-bound high school senior!
