Is it all about the Kitchen and Baths?

By
Real Estate Agent

Looking for the perfect home can be a time consuming and challenging process but it can also be a great learning experience.  We all know that kitchen and baths sell homes and of course Location, Location, Location but don't forget the BASEMENT!

Ask your agent about the furnace/boiler, the hot water heater, the electric panel, and if applicable any central air or well equipment.  While agents aren't experts in heating, cooling, etc... The good ones have sold enough homes to learn what to look for.

Ask them-you can always remodel the kitchen later.

You are so right, to many buyer only look at the cover. You gotta see what the house is made off. A Realtor should help out on this, look at the boiler/furnace/heating & AC system, hotwater tank, insulation if you can, these are all big ticket items. To many buyer forget to look at how much a year will it cost me to live here...get utility bill for the year, it's not a guarantee but it will help with your budget. ~ Dave

Thanks for the comments- We need to remind/tell our buyers that there is more to a home then the walls and floors.  Make sure you are a good source of information for you clients, you want them to refer you to their friends/family.
