your image of your ideal home – here are four things to look past the first thing
are cosmetic issues are you walking through a house that has old wallpaper or
ugly paint be sure to ignore it these things can be
changed I know it’s really hard to imagine the living room without the ugly
bird covered wallpaper but do your best to ignore it cosmetic fixes like this
are only a small DIY cost the second thing to ignore is old carpet
some people hate carpet altogether but when there’s old carpet it makes that
much worse but it shouldn’t be a deal breaker if you love everything else
about home carpet like wallpaper and paint can be changed and you don’t have
to break the bank to do it sometimes sometimes you can even negotiate for new
carpet in your offer if the carpet is really beat-up
the seller may be willing to replace it as part of the sale the third thing is a
room used for something else just because the current home owners are
using the second bedroom as a walk-in closet doesn’t mean that you have to try
and look past that furniture clothes decor and imagine your things in the
space instead would a bed fit in their walk-in closet is there a closet in the
room it may be hard to picture but don’t let it stop you from finding your dream
house and the fourth thing to ignore is the sellers personal belongings do you
see any odd items that show a political leaning that you don’t agree with or
maybe a few dozen porcelain dolls try to ignore the seller stuff and
imagine your things in the space instead at the end of day not every house you
see will be decorated and painted just the way you would have liked but try to
look past the clutter and surface changes when you’re shopping for your
