Frankenstein Home Hits The Market, Would You Want To Buy It?

Real Estate Agent with Joe Manausa Real Estate 8508880888

Surely you have seen or heard about the movie of the man-made monster, but have you also heard about the Frankenstein Home?

In the movie, eccentric scientist Victor Frankenstein creates a grotesque creature by assembling and then reanimating body parts from multiple dead people.

In the housing market, cautious buyers are looking at numerous houses and assembling all of their favorite features of each.

This house that they seek, a mythical house, pieced together by all the favorite parts of houses that they've viewed, has them hoping the perfect home is out there.

Frankenstein Home Misleads Ready Homebuyers

Here's how it happens.

You go see home #1, and you really love the kitchen.

Then you go see home #2, and you really love the back yard.

Finally, you see home #3 and you love how big the rooms are.

You then decide that's exactly what you want. A home (in your price range) that has the perfect kitchen, the huge backyard, and the big bed rooms. Of course, you also want a deal on it too. Alas, you have built a Frankenstein home.

Avoid The Frankenstein Home By Setting Priorities

Doctor Frankenstein HouseThis happens to the best of people.

It happens due to a lack of a home-buying process that ensures you know which of your priorities is most important, which features you are willing to pay for, and which ones you will likely forego in order to maintain your predetermined spending limit.

It's all about being organized and using a smarter process to buy a home.

A Frankenstein home is not born, it is created. One does not exist in the real world, rather only in the minds of unprepared and unsuspecting homebuyers.

These monsters have been know to confuse and scare prospective buyers, causing delays and unhappy moving experiences. Don't be the next victim in the house of Frankenstein!

If you are thinking about buying a home and would like to avoid creating a scary Frankenstein home, then simply drop me a note and we can schedule a time to build the perfect home buying plan for you and your family.

Never thought of it that way. It always amazes me how the #1 priority changes once people start looking at homes.

I must have...turns into we don't care if we have that.....

Thank you Than. It's why we do not meet buyers at houses and why we push really hard to organize them first.

Joe, now when I have customers straying down this path I'll calmly ask, "Aren't you forgetting something?"  Then when they inquire "What?", my response will be "a laboratory".  This was a great post with a twist, thank you.

Hilarious, Joe - and SO true!  Buyers remember what they want to remember and then cobble it together into one home.  And it may or may not be what they were "looking for" in the first place...
