Property Insights: Move-In Ready Houses

There are times in life when you need to move, immediately. Maybe you just received a job transfer, or your home sold faster than you thought it would or you have found a really nice furnished house that you like. Whatever the situation, a move in ready house is almost always a pretty good solution. Read one for pros and cons of this arrangement.

Easy Transition
These sorts of houses require little or no effort – everything is basically done. No demolition, no painting and no moving around of things. You basically just show up and settle in.

Attractive Upgrades
Most move in ready houses are in tip-top shape, and come with all things attractive to new buyers including walk in closets, open plan kitchens and so much more.

Location, location, location
Most of these are located in desirable neighbourhoods. This is not only a tremendous draw for new buyers but also increases the re-sale value when that time comes.


Little customization.

With these homes, what you get is what you keep. As a dream home you may want it to be perfect. You may be in love with certain areas of the house and not others. There will always be some give and take when it comes to move-in ready homes, but that is a choice you have to make.

Because the house comes fully furnished, it may cost a bit more than a house that is not.

As the name suggests,move in ready houses are ready when you are. Dream houses exist, these days the choices are just that many more.
