The Covered Porch will make it Darker in the Home During the Afternoon.

Real Estate Agent with Benchmark Realty LLc License# 00285925

Covered porchThe covered porch will make it darker in the home during the afternoon. - And so will the shade trees. Most of the time I take common sense for granted, but the feedback from some realtors is just amazing.

I have two houses listed that have covered porches on the west side of the homes. I get feedback constantly that the homes seem dark in the afternoon compared to some of the other homes they have looked at. When I ask the realtor of the other homes had covered porches, they ask what difference does that make. It keeps the sun off the house, making it darker.

Shade trees do the same thing, and I get the same comments about the dark home. People use your head and think about why it's dark when the blinds are open. That doesn't mean that anything is wrong with the house.

You must be getting feedback from some of the same genius agents I've been dealing with this week , LOL

The lower energy bills might show them why the house is dark!

Ronald - You know and I know that they come in all flavors of dense

Susan - I'm sure we all have similar problems with feedback. If I could only show the house with them.

Mel and Gretchen - You and I know it, the buyer and realtor are just in the dark.

I call them boneheads. I don't know what that means but they don't use their head for anything but to hold up their big hair. I love this area of Franklin and Cool Springs

Renee- here in the south they are energy saming ammenities also, but we also have realtors here (mostly from the north), who have never thought about blocking out the sun on a hot afternoon. I really appreciate intelligent realtors, but here it's about 50 percent.
