What to Overlook When You View Homes for Sale in Arlington

July 30, 2018  

After you decide that you want to buy a home and are ready to view homes for sale in Arlington, there are some things you should know. It is important to keep an open mind and disregard some aspects of the houses you will see. Some attributes of a house can be changed with little expense and effort and should not be a “deal breaker.” Homeowners that have some issues with these five factors in their houses may even be more willing to negotiate price.

  1. It can be hard to overlook paint or wallpaper that simply isn’t your style, but they are some of the easiest things to change. Look past the surface and see how beautiful it can be with the color of your choice on the walls.
  2. Cabinet hardware. This is another really simple fix. Knobs are effortlessly removed with a screwdriver.
  3. Light fixtures. Outdated and unattractive light fixtures and ceiling fans are replaceable with those that are more to your taste.
  4. Stainless steel is the finish of choice for most appliances today. Those ugly harvest gold, green, black or white appliances can be exchanged for new, energy efficient models that will work for you and your family.
  5. Lack of curb appeal. A neat and well-designed front yard is a dream for a buyer but not all properties have that advantage. This is an opportunity for you to add flowers, landscaping and grass that suits your purposes.

The only thing you cannot change about a house is the location. View homes for sale in Arlington in the neighborhoods where you will feel comfortable living and the details will take care of themselves. Call New House Match at (425) 268-0347 to schedule a showing.
