Original House, No Updates, No Staging: Will It Sell?

This home owner said phooey on updates and upgrades. She placed her home for sale in its original condition. You might call it charmingly outdated.

An old ceiling fan. Ugly wallpaper. And what’s with the furniture lined up all around the walls?

The outside, while tidy, doesn’t exactly look professionally landscaped, either.

So what happened? Did the house receive any attention from buyers? Did it go for a decent price?

Four people bid on the home. It sold for $375,000 above asking price at $2,575,000.

Evidently, the home is in a hot location! But still, the point remains: a house doesn’t have to be all decked out with granite counter tops and hardwood floors in order to sell. Neat, clean, and vintage also works.

Interesting, right?
