Every house is different with subjective and objective positive and negative qualities.

As is every buyer/seller has a unique personality, goals and circumstances.

No transaction is the same.

Buyers don't want to go see real estate, but they want to be sure that the property is in excellent condition. The less they travel, the better and the price they want low compared to the market.
