In all our house looking lately the first room I look at is the kitchen. In the Phoenix market right now many of them are missing at least the refrigerator and some of them the stove. I look at sink size and type as well. I want the counter tops to be in good shape and enough room on them so someone can work on food preparation easily.
After that I move on to bedrooms and closets. I like to see a nice size for the bedrooms. You know something big enough for actual furniture and enough closet space for the average person. Some bedrooms and closets are so small I really don't know how the builder thought they would ever work for anyone.
I also like to take a good look at the landscaping. If it has been neglected but basic layout and plantings are done that just need some care that is okay. Starting from a bare dirt yard can be expensive.
Back to kitchens.... I need to go pay some attention to my own.
Until next time,
