Bloomfield Hills Homes with Tough to Fix Flaws

Posted in Bloomfield Hills Homes by Michigan Real Estate Expert on March 21st, 2011

If you’re looking at Bloomfield Hills homes to buy, you’re probably overwhelmed by everything you need to take into account before making your final choice.  You have to think about the Bloomfield Hills home’s size, location, price and condition, to name a few. 

Some of the most important features to carefully examine are those that cannot be easily or inexpensively changed.  You can easily and relatively inexpensively repaint the bright pink walls and replace the avocado refrigerator.  But what about the power lines hanging across the backyard?  You may never be able to get those removed.

Here are a few difficult to fix flaws you may want to steer clear of:

  • Odd smells coming from businesses in the neighborhood such as farms, garbage dumps and recycling centers 
  • A busy road
  • Noise from businesses, trains, airports or flight paths
  • Super steep driveway or road to the home
  • Traffic from busy shopping centers or entertainment facilities
  • A floodplain 

Watch out for flaws that are expensive and difficult (or even impossible) to fix.  They can significantly decrease your enjoyment of the home, while you live there.  They can also lengthen your Bloomfield Hills home’s time on the market and reduce its resale value, when you’re ready to sell.
