Too Much Lipstick, Too Much Rouge | ME Real Estate Listings On The Trashy Side.

Jerry Jeff Walker, if he was a real estate property listing buyer, he might say he looks for places a little on the trashy side.

Low price, big adventure and up for the challenge surprise of what’s wrapped up underneath. Late night sessions burning the midnight oil. Tearing into the place.Going all the way. Pulling it apart and then putting it back together.

To see how far it all goes during the exercise involving something not picture perfect. Missing a few pieces of the property listing puzzle. Absent a tooth or two top and bottom in the wide full grin affected by the gin.

What it is going to take in transformation of the property listing that is loose as a goose?

Low cost properties in Maine happen all the time.

Nothing new in Vacationland.

But often when the place is trashed, less than white glove clean or ship shape ten hut.

The real estate in Maine buyer can get caught up in the emotion of how did people live like this? How did they begin to raise kids, have holidays, do the day to day like normal people? They didn’t. Step away from your frame of reference in the “home sweet home” Toto. 

Distracted, having a hard time taking it all in like a sucker punch of reality just hit them. Taking their eyes off the big lot on the corner with all the potential in the investment. All the good deep down redeeming qualities forgotten in the momentary shock.

Not just finding the obvious faults that jump off the page during the walk through with a clipboard and flashlight. Holding their nose shut. Breathing through their mouth. Wishing they had a major head cold.

All the good that shines through in the dirty but nicely priced property listings in Maine.

When the place has everything put together as far of location, many of the important assets that still give it an attraction. ice fishing maine photo

A high level of appeal still radiates.

When you add up all the advantages.

Overlook the lack of housekeeping.

The sweet and mostly sour smells of an abandoned Maine house.

The need for a very large dumpster to heave ho.

The packed to the gills interior used like a giant  eight room trash compactor. 

Where it should start and finish in the head to toe glance scan size up.

Just would you look at all that potential for a song. If I just say I do.

And knowing battered and bruised the bathroom and kitchen disgraces are being yanked out.

Worked over anyway to make them what they should be. Were before the stub the toe.

To restore them to their former glory before the crows feet, laugh lines, hard times when ridden hard and put away wet took it’s toll.

Not lamenting the new low levels everything has settled to during some distraction or plain lack of funds. Or someone’s mid life crisis. That decline is what makes the now you can afford it show up for consideration.houlton maine photo

Keeping your eye on the ball, the prize.

What has occured out of neglect of the payments.

Has created an opportunity limited to those with the cash, the perfect timing to move forward now.

On a property that has so many loose ends, ten foot pole marks that blow it out of the water.

For the flirt with first time home buyers. The picky program Maine secondary home mortgage loan approval standards. That song and dance.

The property that has seen better days where the buyer has the time, expertise and no pressure. To peck away at what needs doing. With most of it on their own time, saving a dime.ocean front maine photo

Property listings in Maine a little on the trashy side.

We serve all, sell all and stock the property listing shelves.

With even junk, cheap Maine land parcels, anything that someone might want to give a whirl.

Whatever floats your boat.

To see where it goes and that is up for the rise and fall, sideways challenge when a less than perfect piece of real estate in Maine property listing is your target of desire.
