When features lists are left on the kitchen counter, my clients like to review them. Sometimes things that are left in the house actually convey. But, what if the home features listed were right ... and wrong?
Since there is no water feature in the neighborhood, is this what they meant?
"Upgraded electric system"
Yes, in the 60s, adding a Federal Pacific Stab-lok box. The amperage did not change.
"No evidence of previous flooding"
"Solid wood construction"
Except for the areas riddled with termites.
"Classic, old-world plumbing"
With a few additions here and there. And the drain lines backed up onto the basement floor ... see photo above!
"Modern electronics convey"
So maybe this doesn't?
Perhaps, in 1966.
True, all true.
But where will they put the moose head?
It's a beaut! And the chimney had no problems!
OK, maybe the chimney had some really serious problems...
My recommendation: when you see a feature list, check it out! It might be a lot of fun! Even when it's true.
