You view a property on the market and you’re appalled by what you see. The garage is packed to the roof with boxes, bikes and other items. The basement is dark and gloomy. And if that isn’t enough to dissuade you from buying, the carpeting in the family room is old, stained and musty.
Not a pretty picture.
Yet, if you can look past all that, the property might just well be a diamond in the rough. A garage can be cleaned out, carpets replaced. In fact, the home could well be just a few improvements away from being a gem.
So when shopping for a new home, give any bad first impressions you have a second chance. A property you may not have liked initially could end up being your dream home.
