The Benefits of Passing On The “Pretty” House

Thinking of Buying Your "Right-Sized" Home

Everybody wants to offer on the pretty, show-ready, staged house.

Those homes are ready to go, but they also get an enormous amount of offers and go way above the list price. If you’re willing to pass up on that show-ready staged home, we can get you into a home quickly and more affordably.

Sometimes you need to fall in love with the “uglies” and use them to your advantage to get an offer accepted. Those “uglies” can include, dated wallpaper, old carpet or flooring, strangely colored bathroom fixtures or tile, outdated kitchens with laminate countertops, the 70s paneled family rooms, weird musty smells, or pet orders.

All of these “uglies” are purely cosmetic. If the home has good bones, it doesn’t take a bunch of money to correct those. With a little determination and sweat equity or a good contractor, you could save yourself thousands in the long run. Think about how much you could do with that $20,000 you didn’t put on the “pretty” house.

We would love to get you into a new home quicker for less money. Remember, A&J Realty Partners is here to fulfill your dreams, no matter the size!
