The 70s...the time forgotten by good taste

I had some buyers the other day who acted shocked that there were still homes with shag carpeting. Yes, it is out there and when I do see it I am reminded of the 70s…my youth (The 1970s not the 1870s!).

I remember reading an article that made the bold statements "
The 1970's are the golden age of bad fashion: The time forgotten by good taste."

Not only does shag carpet still exist but there are still homes with Harvest Gold appliances and even avocado green!

It is interesting that many agents go to great length to state in the narrative “updated” but no one ever bothers to say “original!” To be fair there are new appliances that can be purchased in some of these classic color schemes!

Sellers, unless your target buyer is a 1970s aficionado go ahead and update the kitchen appliances...and the carpet!
