By
Services for Real Estate Pros with AgencyLogic

No one likes to overpay for a purchase, and this is particularly true when buying a home. After all, every square foot of space or block closer to a top school will cost you big-time! So if you're a thrifty first time home buyer who must make every home-buying dollar count, check out these home features that often inspire sellers to jack up their price. That's fine if you truly want these things, but if not? You're wasting your money buying a house.

Interesting video, Stephen. I might question a few of the points, as some of the things mentioned add to resale value. Of course, if one is planning to stay in that house permanently, then of course it's silly to overpay for those items. Number 5 really makes sense to me - I am amazed at the size of houses people buy, knowing they will live in only a few of the rooms. Thanks for sharing!

Good schools and commute near a neighborhood attract families that are looking to buy/rent some properties. Although, this can be a case-to-case basis. But they are one of the strong points of a house sale.

Although single story homes are typically more expensive due to their large footprint if you're getting older it would be smart to have everything on one level due to future mobility issues.
