The Upside of a Home with Downside

When are prospective Buyers disappointed when they view a home that’s in TOO good condition?

Is there even such a thing?

Yeah, there is — at least for a specific kind of Buyer.

Namely, one who’s looking at a home at (or just over) the top of their price range, and is hoping that it will have to be (slightly) discounted for condition.

Or, that the home will be off-putting enough to other Buyers that it will linger on the market, giving them time to sell their current home — and be in a position to buy it.
