“The Curb Cut Clue” ” and the Clincher

It’s not always the case.

But, +90% of the time, when there’s a curb cut (and possibly driveway) in front of a home that leads nowhere . . . the owner (or a previous one) converted what had been a 1-car garage into finished square feet.

Clue #2: there’s a newer, oversized garage in back.

The clincher?

You live in the neighborhood, and watched the contractors do the work. 🙂

P.S.: Of course, if you’ve previously shown the home, it’s also usually apparent.
