In Home Buying, Many "Shortcomings" Are Easily Fixed
There are some things you can't change about a property, like it's location. (I know, I know, you can technically move a house)
There are things which can be changed, however, like a fence, a pool, countertops, garages, and more.
Take a home without a fence. In many cases, a fence can be built the day you take possession of a home. Likewise, a pool and garage can oftentimes be added. Countertops can be swapped. Rooms can be painted. These are all fixable "problems."
The better question is -- Do neighborhood restrictions prevent me from building a fence, pool, garage, or anything else the buyer is looking for?
Great neighborhoods like Habersham, Battery Point and Newpoint simply don't have enough yard to install a pool. Other neighborhoods, like Old Tabby Park on Cat Island back up to the golf course, and do not allow fencing.
So be careful not to eliminate a home from consideration because of a "shortcoming" which is easily fixed.
