Warren County Ohio Real Estate News and Observations

The House Is Perfect But...

I ALMOST love itThis Friday we're doing the paperwork to put a fantastic log home on the market. 

High quality, all the major mechanicals are new, open floor plan, gleaming hardwood floors, 5 heavily wooded acres, a full wrap around porch, a large master suite.  Located in Colerain Twp not too far from the Blue Rock/I-275 interchange, the home is secluded without being TOO secluded.

There's not much NOT to like.


For some buyers this home won't quite be perfect.

In fact, it'll be so imperfect for them that they won't even know it's for sale.

Why won't they know?

Because the home doesn't have a garage, and if a buyer has a mandatory garage keyed into their online search criteria, they won't know the home is available. 

We know for some people a garage is important.  It's not like we don't get snow in Ohio, right??

But from personal experience, I know we can survive without a garage, or at least the use of one.  Our home has a 2 car garage.  Neither of our current cars have EVER been inside that garage, it's belonged to 4 of our cats for 8+ years.  It's a tradeoff, and when it snows, I get to clean off the cars and warm them up a bit.

But for other people, that might not be an option at all. 

But if you'd love a perfect home that doesn't have a garage (and your budget is in the upper $400s), give us a call next week so we can find out if this home IS totally perfect for you!

And just some food for thought, if you're searching for homes online, it's best to keep your searches to the ESSENTIAL criteria.  Better to look through "too many" homes than to miss the one that would have been perfect.
