Many, many Realtors do not like to do it. Some prefer to just sell new construction, or homes in subdivisions. I was having a conversation with another Realtor lately about that.
She said “I just want to sell East Medford subdivisions, because they are easy. You look at the price per square foot and know if it is a good deal or a bad deal. EASY”.
I guess my thing is I am not into easy. I actually like complicated. I can show my experience and expertise much better. What are the easements? what is the well like? How is the septic?
Plus…I just like to be out in the country. Walking around over 20 acres, finding creeks, keeping an eye out for mushrooms. It really is a lot of fun.
Don’t get me wrong, I like to sell homes in town too. Especially in Ashland. But a lot of that has to do with the commute time. Last week I showed 8 rural pieces of property and drove about 400 miles. The next day I showed 6 houses in town, and drove 10 miles.
But even so. I still love those rural properties.
