Hillsboro Home (Oregon) for sale...not letting greed stand in the way!

Second Bedroom...where my antiques live!
We have put out condo in Oregon up for sale!  We, like so many of our friends, have been playing the waiting game with houses that we need to sell.  Our health is good and we want to enjoy the house we move into next...we do not want to move when we are sick or disabled.  So we will sell and buy something on one level. OUR HILLSBORO HOME IS FOR SALE!!!! WE WILL SELL!!!

Why am I so confident?  Because we have come to realize that the price we get for our house is all relative to what the rest of the market is doing.  Even though our condo was worth a good deal more two years ago, what it is worth today is just right in relationship to what everything else is selling for.

This is where the greed comes in. We are not going to be greedy...sellers can be blinded by that old sinful emotion and we are just not going to go there.  Selling is a two way street so the buyer and the seller should meet in the middle someplace.  We need to sell!  It is as simple as that.

Dining Room with kitchen deck in background!
Our condo has been totally re-sheathed on the outside so essentially the exterior is brand new.  We have lived in the condo for 10 years but we have not gone nuts buying stainless steel appliances or granite counter tops.  We are simple people and that is the way we live.  The price reflects our lifestyle choices.   Having said that I still think that the condo is beautiful.  It is filled with light all winter long.  There are three decks...a front porch deck, kitchen deck and a small deck off the master bedroom.  We live within walking distance of a Starbucks, several restaurants and a small boutique grocery store.  The neighborhood is friendly and has a perfect mix of retired couples and young professionals.  We are within walking distance of a huge Intel campus.

So, the question is Will greed keep our Hillsboro home from selling?  If we have anything to say about it, the answer will be a resounding NO!  WE WILL SELL THIS CONDO...PERIOD!

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Too bad it isn't just a bit more north. With our son settling in Washington- it would be tempting to look!

    May you sell quickly and be happy in your next move!

  2. Thank you for stopping by Janette...I know that someone like your son will be coming along to buy. This home is perfect for the young professional!



Leave your thoughts...I am interested.
