What Not To Do When Selling Your Home: 5 Buyer Turnoffs

1890 Victorian home on a corner lot within walking distance from courthouse. Unique property that can be residential or commercial! (This is a rare opportunity with dual zoning!)

Enjoy coffee in the sun room and take a hot bath in the cast iron tub. The house was previously a flower shop and is currently residential, but would make a great office, restaurant, salon or retail space too!

Is it likely? NO. Continue reading →
