Ramblings Of A Real Estate Agent

Ramblings Of A Real Estate Agent

As I sit and contemplate writing a blog for the month, I am thinking about homes that I have shown to people and the difference in many of the homes. 

Several of the homes that I have shown have been bank owned properties and needed work done before someone could move in. I have heard comments about the amount of money that was going to be needed to bring the homes up to the standards of the different people looking. We all seem to have opinions about what is the most important feature our homes should have. To some it has to have a pool, for others it is a beautiful kitchen with lots of upgrades.

Then I have shown new build homes. Looking at a model home that has been professionally decorated, the comments are very different. Now I am hearing things about the color choices or maybe the size of the bed in the master bedroom, the counter tops in the kitchen or "did you see that faucet". 

I find it humorous! I enjoy the excitement and energy of people looking for that perfect home, and I want to hear all the comments so that I can direct them to that great new place. I try to point out some of the things that could make a difference to them after the purchase. What is the energy efficiency of the home? Electric bills can vary from home to home, but having energy efficient windows and doors can make a huge difference to that monthly bill.  

I believe that the most important thing a home owner must have is truly loving the place. When you write the check for the loan each month, it will certainly be easier to send it if you do.  

Thank you for reading my ramblings.
