Learning to Rate Homes in LA
Anyone who has spent the day touring homes for sale knows that it can be an overwhelming and confusing adventure. Trying to remember which house had the fantastic backyard and which home had the ugly kitchen can leave you feeling no closer to a decision than before you started your day. There is a strategy you can use to bring clarity to your home search. Rate all the homes on a scale from 1-10. But there are no 10's, 10's are perfection, and there is no such thing as a perfect house. If you rate a house a nine on a scale of 1-10, buy that house chances are you won’t find anything you love more. If you give the house an 8, you should probably write an offer because you don't want to lose an 8. And if you give it a seven, then asked yourself, "What would make this house in eight or nine? What's it missing? How hard is it to fix that?". And you give the house a 6? Forget about it. You do not want to settle on a 6. Remember, if you're out looking at homes on a Saturday, you don't have to remember all of them. We just need to remember the 9's and the 8's.
