The Benefits of a Less-Than-Perfect Home

By
Real Estate Sales Representative with Sutton Group Summit

Do you have a clear image of your perfect dream home? Have you made a list of all the features it must have? Will you walk away from a property that doesn’t have huge mature trees in the back yard, or a wrap-around deck, or a large country-style kitchen, or comfy sunken living room? (Or all of the above?)

It’s okay to have a wish list of features that you want in a home. In fact, it’s a very good idea. It will make shopping that much easier. Plus, you’ll increase the chances of finding a property you like.

But it’s also important to be flexible. Why? Because you’re bound to come across properties on the market that fit most of your criteria, but not all. And if you’re not flexible with your wish list, you may miss out on some otherwise ideal opportunities.

Keep in mind that a less-than-perfect property can potentially be improved. If the house doesn’t have a wrap-around deck, you can build one. If it doesn’t have a spacious kitchen, you may be able to expand the kitchen area – perhaps by adding a pantry in an adjacent room.

The perfect home, at the right price, may not exist on the market. But a property that meets most of your criteria probably does.

Marina, sounds like you are being influenced by The Property Brothers!  And you make an excellent point.

Marina, I totally agree with this.  It's good to have a wish list, but very important to have an open mind and be flexible.  Planning how to make improvements can be exciting.
