Imagine this. You’re house searching and you fall in love with a home as soon as the realtor opens the front door. She begins by telling you it has everything you were hoping for…a fixer upper with great bones, 100-year-old heart pine floors, high ceilings, wainscoting. Then she whispers in my ear “By the way, the main bathroom is down the hall from the master bedroom”.
I could hear the brakes screech in my mind…
Wait. Backup. You’re kidding, right?
At this point, it wasn’t a deal breaker but it certainly was something I could use to negotiate on the price.
