6 Cos­metic Fea­tures That Shouldn’t In­flu­ence Your Home Buy­ing Decision

The Prince George Citizen - The Citizen - Real Estate Weekly - - Real Estate Weekly -

We all have an im­age of our dream home, com­plete with stun­ning decor and awe­some ap­pli­ances, but it doesn’t take long to re­al­ize that dreams don’t al­ways come true. Com­pro­mise is key when it comes to house hunt­ing and some things on your wish list may have to be ne­glected.

Typ­i­cally, cos­metic fea­tures shouldn’t dic­tate your choice when buy­ing a home. It’s more im­por­tant to buy a home that is struc­turally sound, meets all your needs and is in a great lo­ca­tion, than to have the right colour paint on the walls.

A good rule of thumb is to think about what you can eas­ily change your­self in the fu­ture for an af­ford­able price. While you might dearly wish for gran­ite coun­ter­tops, they can be added at any time in the fu­ture. On the other hand, fix­ing out­dated wiring or leaky roofs are far more dif­fi­cult and ex­pen­sive.
