There are several things that buyers need to keep in mind when buying their home. Certain things in a home can not be changed.
We have listed three things that can not be changed.
Location- unless you are buying the home to move to a new location, you are stuck with where it is sitting. Is it too far from work, near a railroad track, busy freeway or on a busy intersection. The noise from these locations can get to be bad.
Floor Plan - if you are looking for an open floor plan so that you can entertain family and friends, buying a house with small chopped up rooms is not the answer. Tiring down walls is not as easy as it may seem. You will need both an architect and a contractor. This will be expensive and time consuming.
Placement of the Home - if you are looking for a quiet, secluded and private home buying a house that is a roads edge or a corner lot is not a good fit. Keep looking.
Remember to discuss what it is you are looking for with your agent. It will save time.
