La Casa Real Estate, Inc.

Remember when homes had parlors, separate formal dining rooms, tiny kitchens with few cupboards, front and back porches, bathrooms with only tubs and no showers, few or no closets?
Styles of homes change over the years and what was current in the 1930’s no longer fit the needs and desires of the home buyers in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
So it is with homes built in the 1970’s and 1980’s. The buyers 30 and 40 years later are looking for things that were not popular or maybe even not available when the majority of our La Casa homes were built.
The homes for sale in La Casa being today fall into two categories.
They have potential to be brought “up to date” and the prospective buyer has the talent and/or the funds to do it. Or alternatively, the sellers have been gradually “updating” the look of their 70’s and 80’s home with new paint or texture on the patterned walls, wood flooring, tiled floors in the bathrooms, new kitchen cabinets, better windows, air conditioning in the lanai, newer furniture, flat screen Tvs, etc. Those homes will sell faster if they are priced right.
To get top dollar for your home, sometimes all you have to do is replace the carpet, redo the walls and clear out the surplus possessions that won’t go with the house anyway. If you are thinking of selling your home, ask Vickie or Gary what you might do to help get it sold. They know what serious buyers want today.
Most home buyers today want to move in and not have to do any updating or renovating. They want to start enjoying the La Casa life style right away – and who can blame them? That is why we chose to live in La Casa too!
