Look for Hidden Details in Older Homes

What immediately comes to mind when I say “older home”?  Probably a home that needs some sweat equity, right?  That may possibly be the case with older homes that have not been updated recently but if you are a buyer who has seen some older homes either online or on a tour, did you notice anything special about the older home?  Did you look beyond what is obvious to the naked eye?  Did you open the doors that are a darker finish than you’d prefer and notice the inlaid detail behind the door?  Did you see the fireplace and not think twice about the stone surrounding it?  The seller custom-built the home and chose all of the stone materials themselves.  Buyers in general are looking for granite kitchens, updated cabinetry, open concept, master suites with en suite bath and large walk-in closet, nice sized yard, etc.  If most buyers are looking for the same details, then sellers update their homes to have all of those same details.  Eventually all of the homes look the same on the inside.  Older homes offer the opportunity to own a home that is unique not just on the outside but inside as well.  That is exactly what the home at 8860 N Seneca Rd in Bayside offers.  It has the updated kitchen that buyers want, hardwood floors, open concept layout, large master suite with a 4-piece en suite bath and large walk-in closet, yard plus a large sunroom that doubles as another living room.  If you visit the home, don’t forget to open the closet doors because you do not want to miss the inlaid detail.  The stone surrounding the fireplace was hand-picked by the seller when they bought the land and built the home.    The home has detail and history that you will not find anywhere else!  In a country full of cookie-cutter homes, why not invest in a home with the one thing that most buyers say they want but can’t get with a newer home – character.  As always, please feel free to contact me at 414-350-6358.
