6 Keys to Selling Historic & Old Homes, We’re looking at you Astor Park!

There are some B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L homes in the Astor Park, Green Bay WI area yet some potential home buyers tend to shy away from an older or historic home – why is that? Astor Park old home seller, take note!
Here are 6 key components that can turn a potential home buyer off:

  1. Is your home REGISTERED as a historic house? If so, have any and all paperwork ready to show home buyer. Maybe you don’t have any, and that’s fine, but then give some info on what exactly that means for the new buyer.
  2. Still have original windows? Energy efficiancy is pushed in every home buyers face, so them that your historic home isn’t bleeding you dry in the utility department by showing your gas/electric bills.
  3. When was the last time the house was re-insulated? Have no idea yourself? Again, show utility bills.
  4. Electical issues. Are you on a circuit breaker? Still have knob and tube wiring? Are any of your outlets grounded? Not sure about any of this? Fear not – call an elctrician to come out and take a look around, are there areas that you could update at a reasonable price to attract more home buyers?
  5. Has the plumbing ever been updated? Meaning, do you still have cast iron thorughout? That could potentially be a big deal to some home buyers.
  6. Scary basements. For real though. So many home buyers think that an older home means you have a dark, scary, wet, stone basement. And maybe you do! This would be the time to add lights so it’s not so dark and scary. Clean it up so it looks as best as it can look. Does it get wet? Maybe there are a few tricks you can do to help… gutter extenders, adding fill to any sloping sides.. things like that.
