It’s a Great Time to Be Middle Aged!


Margo does a great job of describing how a resale home can take on the look of a new home with minor effort.


The market advantage for a middle-aged home:

Inside every dark cloud there’s a silver lining!  In this housing market new construction has all but vanished, leaving a sales opportunity for owners of middle-aged homes.

Think of the marketing advantages!  Older homes are located in established neighborhoods with mature landscaping – instead of subdivision scalping.  With a few key bells and whistles to make it feel like new, the middle-aged house is a newly appreciated hot commodity!
Take down the wallpaper.  Paint the stained woodwork.  Refinish the hardwood floors.  Reface the kitchen cabinets.  Install new counters and appliances.  Replace old bathroom light fixtures.  Voila!  “Old” becomes the new “New”! 

And there’s nothing like a SOLD sign out front to make you feel new again too!

About susanmorrison

After living in Walpole, MA for many years, our family was transferred to the west coast when I was a senior in high school. In 1983, I graduated from Mission San Jose High School in Fremont, California. I am also a 1987 graduate of Providence College with a major in liberal arts and a minor in business administration. I bring to the table many years of sales experience beginning with thirteen years in Corporate Sales at Delta Air Lines. I'm the mother of three children and I'm very active within the Franklin, MA community. I am also a cancer survivor and support the American Cancer Society Charities.

My husband and I have built five homes and I've lived in a variety of other locations including Toronto Canada, Irving Texas and my current home in Franklin, MA. As a result of all my moving around, I came to the conclusion that I was an expert at moving...why not become an expert on the other side of the table? I earned my real estate license in 2004 and believe that I have found my true niche'. I can empathize with my clients on a variety of levels; whether they are buying or selling. And, like so many other good realtors out there, I believe that possessing good communication skills is one of the many keys to success.
