What Is It In Real Estate That Lights Your Fire?
For me, it is how you can't judge a house by the outside - the same model house can be startlingly different on the inside by choices of color, texture, flooring, lighting, furniture - even appliances.
Time and again I look for similar houses in a neighborhood when my client likes a particular model. When I find an identical model, it seems as soon as I walk in the front door - everything is different! Of course, the older the neighborhood, the bigger the differences.
Even when a house doesn't have a unique flavor, a special feature could have a WOW factor that flips the script on assumptions. Today I asked my colleagues what feature of the house was the hands-down deal-closer = the pool.
This is what lights me up - the amazing variety of features and details that make the sum total of a building. The special charm that can turn another so-so property into a HOME.
I take pride and pleasure in showing off the special charm and features of houses to clients, be they buyers, neighbors at an Open House, or even grouchy investors who only want to see how many $$$'s are piled up in the corner!
Recently, I created a blueprint for a large house because the floorplan was so out-of-ordinary and I thought it would help visitors to put the house in perspective by seeing a complete layout, especially where the bonus rooms are.
Let's keep the market on fire!
