Looking for a Home in Vancouver? Don't Get Distracted by the Irrelevant
Every real estate agent advises his or her listing clients to clean, de-clutter, and de-personalize their home before it goes on the market. Unfortunately, not all homeowners take that advice.
The result: You as a homebuyer may become distracted by the irrelevant and fail to recognize a home that could be "just right" for you.
Here are some thoughts to keep in mind as you view homes:
- Worn carpeting is an opportunity. The price has either been reduced for this defect or you may be able to get a carpet allowance. Either way, it means you can live with brand new carpeting in the color and style you choose. Apply the same thinking to other floor coverings and paint.
