I number of years ago we were helping a couple relocate from Virginia to the Plymouth/Northville/Novi area here in Michigan.
They ended up purchasing a nice home in Novi, however one thing they were very sensitive about was a front hall closet.
I grew up in a home built in the 1960s with a front hall closet and I guess I took front hall closets for granted.
This couple currently owned a 3,000 square foot two-story brick home in the middle of a pine forest. That sounded like a great home till they told me it didn't have a front hall closet. That meant that every time they had guests in the fall, winter, or spring they would need to take their guests coats at the front door and walk into their primary bedroom and throw them on the bed. Just like they had to do when they were impoverished college students.
They did a lot of entertaining and it drove them nuts.
Since that time I've always been sensitive to point out when a home was lacking a front hall closet, and even discuss the scenario of bringing guests in the front door in the winter with home buyers.
If you are in the market for a home in the Novi area give us a call. We love to discuss home buying and how we can help protect you during that process.
Thank you Richard. I hope you have a great day also!
