Don't Be Like the Watergate Hotel
At Green Light Real Estate, we’re always telling people that there’s no such thing as a perfect house. Something almost always comes up during an inspection. But this one is kind of ridiculous.
My family recently took a long weekend in Washington, D.C. Here’s a picture of part of the Watergate Hotel there (yes, THAT Watergate hotel, where, out of desperation, I broke down and spent $15 on an order of chicken tenders for the kids.)
The hotel was beautiful, modern, sparkling clean, and very well--staffed. It’s a top notch hotel in an expensive city. And I admit it, the tenders were good.
But...it looks like they should have had one of us come over and do a “Green Light Red Flag Walkthrough” Check out that dangling electrical outlet! (Who needs electricians when you have plumbers...) We spot things like this for our buyer and seller clients so they don’t become problems during the negotiation.
I know, I know...I was supposed to be on vacation.
