There are three things you should avoid when buying a home. These three things can also make a home harder to sell. Today, the things I’m going to share with you all have to do with features of a home you cannot change. In any real estate transaction, it’s critical to consider any unsavory features that can’t be changed.

  1. Steep driveway. A big slope up or down will be a big turnoff for buyers. Homes with steep driveways do sell, but generally for less than properties with flat driveways.
  2. High-voltage powerlines. If your property backs up to high-voltage power lines, you’re going to have a lot of trouble selling. People simply prefer not to live near power lines.“In any real estate transaction, it’s critical to consider any unsavory features that can’t be changed.”
  3. Highways or airports. Any home that is near a busy highway or airport will be surrounded by a lot of extra noise. Many buyers aren’t going to want to deal with this, and sellers will have a hard time listing these kinds of properties.

If you have any other questions or would like more information, feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
