A Tree is A tree is A Tree..or is it.

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

Saying that one home sale is like another, is like saying all trees are the same.   Not all homes are created equal and quality varies a lot.

That is one of the reasons for home inspections.  It is also why some homes that look identical...are more expensive.

If you are not worried about the Bells and Whistles, the cheaper home may fit your needs.  But if quality is a must...expect to pay more.  It will pay in the long run.

I know that some buyers care about quality finishings while others are satisfied with a big box. It takes all kinds.

The trend seems to be downsize with higher quality. Of course you still have the growing families out there that need room more than quality. I'm an empty nester so I have downsized from the family ranch to the modest size golf course home and the mini van to the Porsche.

Bill, as always you make a good point, my customers who search just by price may be missing superior quality for not opening up the search criteria a little more.

Very true William, I couldn't agree more. Just like in most things in life, quality comes at a premium.

There are no two homes alike.  Quality the builder used and if a previouly owned one...normal maint.
