What are Your Home's Hidden Gems?

Real Estate Agent with Baird & Warner Real Estate



What do I mean by hidden gems in your Winnetka or North Shore home?  I'm referring to features in a home that have the potential to add long-term value but are not necessarily reflected in the price.  

Some people make think that a particular "gem" is a waste of money, while others may consider it "worth every penny." Take a look at this infographic that was compiled by the Active Rain real estate network  (where hundreds of nationwide agents were polled.)

As a buyer, this graphic may help you look beyond the obvious attributes that affect price and identify hidden gems that others may overlook or not be interested in.

What a great post Margaret.  Suggested! It is important to know what is actually "behind the curtain".  Those hidden gems are what separate the wheat from the chaff in terms of finding the right home!
