Closed Monday!
owners left it in good shape but needs some design unification on interior for sure...
getting paint bids and for some electrical work--have to replace ceiling lights, ceiling fans, and some electrical switch covers...and get some new window coverings
they have vertical blinds on the bedroom windows--just not my thing although I think they are probably not cheap...

need bids for pool service and yard care---our daughter and SiL do their own

anyone in Venice/Nokomis area have good pool service to recommend
or yard care?

Congratulations and welcome to Florida!

Check the business and service directory in the Sun newspaper for lawn and pool care. I think it is posted two times per week in the paper. Check to see if any of your neighbors have pool or lawn care. Sometimes if they have more than one in the neighborhood they give discounts.

Tell your daughter/SIL to watch the neighborhood for lawn service and pool service providers that are parked nearby and doing their service in the neighborhood. Jot down the tel# and name from the truck, or ask them if they have a card and can do a quick quote. It's good to get some that have other clients in your direct area. I got a lot of my workers this way and always had good luck.

Congrats on your purchase and in a few years you will find that this was a very wise investment.
