Moving into a new piece of Cape Coral real estate can be a dream come true for numerous men and women. However, it’s not always perfect. From the air conditioning to the plumbing, many little, as well as large things can go wrong. And purchasing new property can be a gamble. See folks’ biggest complaints when moving into new property in Florida.
To begin, thousands of men and women looking for homes for sale in Cape Coral complain about its livability. Some homes look perfect to a shopper, but they turn out to be a “money pit” after they move into the property. That’s why a shopper should always ask for a tour to see the home in person for inspections. If the seller is reluctant to open his or her doors, there may be something to hide.
A similar complaint is that a new home’s assets turn out to be a giant flop. For instance, a married couple may fall in love with a home for sale when they see the fancy hot tub in the backyard. However, after they move in, they figure out it will cost them thousands of dollars in repairs. Or an indoor basketball court could be a dream come true for many children. However, the noise caused by a bouncing ball echoing throughout the house may be enough to drive parents crazy.
Another issue that seems to bother thousands of folks who just bought Cape Coral homes for sale is the extra goodies that the previous owners leave behind. For instance, the family that used to live in your new home may have filled the garage with boxes of unwanted junk, like old clothes and children’s toys, for you to dispose of. Even if it was their job to clean out the property, it was certainly easier to leave you their mess than carrying it to the dumpster. Had they only had a little garage sale, you may have been better off. Now you get to have a garage sale of your own. Who knows, maybe you can get lucky and make a little money on eBay?
Every once in a while, previous homeowners hold bad feelings towards the new residents. In fact, they leave them parting gifts that nobody wants to receive. Upon occasion, unhappy sellers punch holes in the wall or break the appliances. Some folks have even used the garage floor as a toilet. While police action can sometimes be taken, it is never enough to get rid of the bad vibe left in a new home (or the dreadful smell). So do your best not to pick any fights with the seller of a new home. Otherwise, the aftermath can be quite horrifying.
Finally, figuring out all the ins-and-outs of appliances can be a nightmare. How does the speaker system work, or what do you have to do to unlock the side gate? Get the seller to walk through the house with you and show you everything you’ll need to know before closing on any Cape Coral luxury home.
