The real estate industry is famous for pushing only the positives – and poo-pooing the negatives. Under frenzy conditions, buyers get caught up in the hustle, but these days they are paying close attention – and being more demanding about what they get for their money.
Most want a turn-key home, with little or no work required, and most will pass on a house like Bluff in spite of the attractive price.
