Recently, I was on a manhunt with my buyer clients to find the PERFECT HOME. This purchase would be their second home, a vacation palace, or potentially an oasis where they could retire. We scoured the market for a single-family that checked all of their boxes, which we slowly learned was very difficult. The idea of renovation was slowly agreed upon. It opened up the market – it offered a broader chance of finding a property that they could now make their own. It was no longer about ‘checking boxes’ — we were now searching primarily on location and possibility. In my opinion this is the best way to shop for real estate in a competitive market. It’s also a rewarding experience in homeownership. You have the chance to take an older property — and make it exactly how you want it. It will suit your needs, appeal to your aesthetics, and you made it happen!
In light of social distancing, I have asked my clients to send me some photos of their renovation (completed by ESHI BUILDERS). It’s so beautiful and I can’t wait to go see it in real life. They removed a load bearing wall, updated the kitchen cabinets, installed a new island, and so much more!
