I have lived in the same house in Portland, OR for over 20 years.
It was too big for me when I bought it.
After my kids had grown and I had gotten divorced, being alone in the house felt ridiculous. I decided that I wanted to sell and downsize. Selling my Portland real estate turned out to be quite tricky. First there was the matter of a real estate agent. The agent had so many requests for me. I needed to list the property, make repairs, clean up inside, and stage it. The agent also had a fee if I sold the property. I wasn’t too keen on any of this. Next, my property was seriously outdated. I had never made any sort of repairs or updates since buying the place. Everything was very 80s and it never bothered me. I felt it was silly updating a home that I was going to sell. No real estate agent agreed with me. I ended up googling how to sell my outdated property fast for cash. I found that Portland real estate buyers that specify cash deals were perfect for me. With a cash home offer, you cut out the real estate agent. I didn’t need to worry about making any repairs or doing updates. I got to just figure on a price, hand over the papers, and move out. I Was able to leave anything that I didn’t want in the house too. It kept everything really simple for me. It was nice not having to worry about doing any kind of remodeling. I am way too old to pay for and coordinate that kind of work. How do I know what is modern as well?
