When youâ€™re looking for a home, chances are, you have a checklist of things you want. Two bathroomsâ€¦ a finished basementâ€¦ a great looking kitchenâ€¦ an expansive deckâ€¦
But what happens when a home you see has a feature that doesnâ€™t quite measure up? Perhaps the basement is poorly renovated. Or the kitchen is small. Or thereâ€™s only one bathroom. Should you say â€œNoâ€?
Hereâ€™s something to consider: A home that has a few undesirable features will probably cost less. And, those savings may more than cover the costs of any needed upgrades or renovations.
So donâ€™t pass up on a house simply because is doesnâ€™t meet all your criteria. It may be worth buying a home for less and then making improvements.
