Ok, so I was out with a client a few days ago and we had half a dozen homes to look at. We saw two homes that had no pictures posted, both listing agents described the properties as "needs TLC." Now that's what I call helpful!!
We pulled up to the first property and it looked fine. Went inside and it was spotless. There was absolutely nothing to be done. Lots of great finishes. Pleasantly surprising!! Had we known the property was so nice we'd have looked at it on the first day.
Second home, also described as "needs TLC." I think the listing agent meant to say "needs DEMO". Reminiscent of Silence of the Lambs - no kidding. The doors and windows were boarded up. Once inside, there was no flooring, no toilets, vanities, light fixtures, huge holes in the ceiling. Access to the backyard wasn't possible as the doors were boarded up and the gate to the backyard was padlocked.
Funny thing is...they were priced the same.
I just have to laugh when I see "needs TLC." Again, code for "i've never seen the house." Lori :o)
