Put your real estate critical thinking cap on and squeeze out some thoughts for me. Which house looks like it might be just a bit bigger than others?
I know it’s obvious. If you guessed the 2-story house that’s about twice the size of most other houses in the neighborhood, you’re right. Isn’t it amazing to come across homes that far outweigh others in a neighborhood? I found this gem last week during an appraisal inspection. This house is just over 3,000 square feet in a community where most homes are half that size between 1300-1500 square feet. It has 7 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, whereas other homes tend to have either 3 or 4 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. Additionally, this super-sized McMansion has a 4-car garage while most houses have a 2-car garage.
Is it overbuilt? What do you think?
Blogging Tip: Use a “photo stitch” app on your cell phone to stitch together photos like I did above (just search “photo stitch” in your app store or market). This is a great way to post an original picture on your blog, and it’s especially good for “before & after” photos or any sort of comparison.
