We look for livable spaces with charm
Layout - you can't fix bad flow. Does the house have good entry appeal, easy movement to the backyard, no wasted space.
Location - Not only is it the right neighborhood, but is it on a good street, close to amenities, where we'd want to live.
Light - Does it have good windows and natural light?
Landscape - Are there trees, open yard to play in? Is the house well set on the lot so you can use your yard?
Livable - When you put it all together, is this a house someone will want to stay in for a long time, and make a home?
Lagniappe - And finally, what's the little something extra that makes the house: the charm, the character that makes this home a unique property. As simple as a great quartersawn oak floors, the right built-ins or fruit trees? Or as stunning as shiplap walls or craftsman woodwork?
