The Bubble Bursting Isn’t All Bad

There seems to be at least one positive side to the slowing of home sales in Lincoln: homes for sale that are in need of a facelift are getting just that. I can think of three houses just in my neighborhood that, thanks to a couple weekends’ worth of work, now look like they’re worth thousands more than before. I don’t know what shape the insides are in, but hey, I’m just glad the yards look groomed and the exteriors have been fixed up.

I’m noticing it in my neighborhood too. Down the street there’s a house that at one time had a giant hole in the roof. The hole was there for an entire year, and I thought for sure the house would be condemmed and replaced by an ugly prefab house. But it’s being fixed up, and a new basement is being poured.
