Changing Real Estate Gears, Replacing Your Home.

Changing Real Estate Gears, Replacing Your Home.

Where I live and list, market, sell (repeat) the real estate property listings are so under valued.

Solid deals in the what’s for sale happen around the clock. Are no fluke or blue light special. So when the time in a person’s life calls for changing the real estate gears, it is often way way cheaper to replace the sticks and bricks.

Especially when the house is just too big and rambling now that the family is gone.

Instead of overhauling and modifying the home in Maine.

To make it fit the loss of mobility or bump it up to five star handicap friendly. If the property has been let go too far. So the cost to fix is beyond the end result value, it is like the old car with just too many miles reading on the dashboard.

Yes, it pains you to make the decision. You are attached to what’s riding or sagging, listing sideways on the four tires.

Sitting and waiting out in the driveway or parked in the cold dark garage. Because the old girl has been through thick and thin with you. You feel an obligation to keep her alive and in service.

But back to the low low priced homes in Maine.

Cheaper to switch it up. Not because we are in a throw away society. Because Mainers are extremely skilled at being thrifty, frugal.

But the fact remains lots of other housing stock for little money is out there to change it up. Try something new and an entirely different experience. For what you put on, slide into for real estate property to call your new home base. 

 And they say hunger improves the taste. The appreciation and gratitude grow when the need for a change eats up a little time. There is a delay in making the change or just weighing the options. fireplace in maine photo

To stretch the hard earned dollars that are needed for other life essentials beyond paying for the Maine home.

Resources to heat the place, keep it insured, pay the property taxes head the list beyond just maintenance requirements or debt service.

In my job the elderly couple who downsize and leave the nest. After all the children do and that don’t hang around to go down with the ship. There is such excitement when the first floor bedroom and bath are features in the move to the new home in Maine.

Because they made do when the stair climb was hard. And getting more difficult by the day in the home sweet Maine home.

But now that challenge is gone. Replaced with new concerns to address to do the best you can. As the Maine home owner gets a little age on them and adapts their housing needs accordingly.
