We have our house on for sale. It is in a neighborhood that really values traditional style architecture and unfortunately our home is considered more Prairie / Frank Lloyd Wright. We would like our home to better fit in with the traditional/conservative standards of the community so it will quickly sell. The community is very closed minded in what it likes and although our home has received high praise by many, it is in a community with mostly center entrance colonial homes. House is situated on 1/2 acre corner lot and is valued at 2.8 million dollars.
We are hoping that subtle changes will help soften the look of the home to appeal to a broader audience. We are particularly interested in whether a cheap facade around the roof line and/or windows would help tone down the home or even doing something with the driveway. We would like to make this home look as traditional as possible in a minimalist way. We are open really to all creative changes. Obviously, we do not want to spent a lot of money on the exterior renovation but maybe some creative ideas could help produce a simple change that would bring more buyers in.
Affordability of design. We want plans that we could take to a simple contractor to have done without spending more than $75,000. The design that can create the biggest change in appearance, while keeping in mind our suggestions, and also uses the least amount of money to accomplish this change will win! Thank you!
