We just returned from a 3 day house shopping spree in Nanaimo. We drove by dozens of properties, toured the insides of a handful and worked on buying a couple of them.
One of the properties we visited was a lovely 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom rancher at the end of a cul de sac. It backs up onto a noisier street but otherwise is a great house. It was covered in stuff … there were dishes, clothes, toys and papers EVERYWHERE. But despite it’s messy state we could tell that it’s a great home. We liked the layout and we liked the size. Really it’s a perfect property for our rent to own program and we’re very interested in getting our hands on it.
At least that is what we thought on the first visit. Then we realized something was missing and we’re not quite sure how much money or just exactly how we’ll fix the problem.
Covered in “stuff” it is no wonder we missed this big problem on our first round through the property …
I took some pictures and I thought we’d play a game. What do you think is missing in this kitchen?
Maybe the photo doesn’t make it that easy to spot … let me give you another angle.
All right … can you spot what’s missing?? If you know the answer put it in the comments. I will randomly select one of the correct answers and send you a Rev N You with Real Estate T-Shirt just for playing the game!
The lesson I learned … bring a home check list with me into every home. Sometimes something really obvious can be overlooked. And that could have cost us a lot of money had we not realized it as we were leaving the property.
