Asked by Bart Betz, Portland, OR • Mon Dec 17, 2012
I have owned my North Portland (University Park) home since early 2004. My 1800 sq ft home was a real fixer - built in 1919. Over the last 9 years I have made substantial improvements to the house including a "from the studs" new kitchen, bathroom, hallway, dining room and bedroom remodels. Each remodel project I installed new electric, insulation, windows, everything.
The only rooms left untouched are the living room and third bedroom. These are still lathe and plaster and the living room has a "texture" on the walls that I am not so fond of (also the electrical is not grounded - but windows are updated)
My question is this: I'm very interested in upgrading to a newer home on the west side of town. I had a real estate agent come by and suggest that I could market the house for the low 270's right now, without finishing off the last rooms. I'm not sure if he is saying this because he wants to market this house right now. What should I do? I'm worried about missing low interest window.
