I live in an affluent city. I hear buyers want to buy a house in "move in" condition. They don't want to make changes. Last house I sold was in a recession.....nothing was selling. We painted, removed wall paper, put up new wallpaper (popular at the time) and put up wainscoting, etc.We sold the house for less than asking. The new owners removed our new wallpaper and put up paper that was the same as we removed!!! The whole neighborhood was laughing. I currently live in a '70s house and love it. I keep it in great repair, put wood flooring in the FM...granite counters, new roof, gutters, soffits, whole house generator. All this for me who lives here. I learned to make your improvements for yourself, not for buyers who will be changing it anyway. I am staying put in my little piece of heaven. When I die, my kids can worry about selling.Birgit
