Me, a perfectionist? No way…Perfectionists run marathons and wear khakis. Perfectionists don’t bite their nails and they have blonde hair.
Guess what…apparently Perfectionists come in all shapes and sizes. Eek! I’ve never thought of myself as one of those people…but when it comes to my house, I can’t stop. I want to redo everything. It’s a sickness, really. The Perfectionist bug got me. There aren’t any ugly rooms in the house, but there are some that just aren’t…quite living up to their full potential. I go back and forth on the things I’d like to change in the house because I’m pretty sure this is not a house we’ll be growing old in. In the past decade, design shows and magazines have really brought awareness to the business of real estate. There are shows that focus completely on whether or not homeowners have made good or bad decisions, financially, with their remodels. The ‘improvements’ I want to make on this house are strictly aesthetic. Waste of money? Probably. Good fun? Absolutely! My house, as is, would be fine to sell. I just feel like it’s my duty to make my house be the very best little house it can be! That’s where the problem comes in…the changes I want to make are changes I’d like to see, not necessarily changes a future buyer would like to see. Living in a small town, I’m not sure these changes would sit well with the majority of buyers out there. These are the changes I’m talking about:
So, this is my dream list. What do you think? Risk ever being able to sell my home in this small town, or take a leap and do it? Would you like these features in a home or would they totally turn you off? Oh, the decisions.
