One unfinished or unsightly space in an otherwise appealing listing can be enough to turn off buyers. Known as “blooper rooms,” these problem areas can put off buyers looking for move-in-ready homes but fail to entice others looking for fixer-uppers.
Whether you’re touring a potential listing or trying to move a languishing property, keep an eye out for these potential issues:
- Outdated and unworkable kitchens
- Overly formal rooms in otherwise informal homes
- Spaces that look too messy or cluttered
- A random space without a clear use
- Depressing laundry rooms
- Dark bedrooms.
