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.
- 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.
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.<div class="pullquote">“In any real estate transaction, it’s critical to consider any unsavory features that can’t be changed.”</div>
- 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.
