Home Buyer Tips–Great Bones…. Huhh?

I was reading a real estate advertisement today and it mentioned the property had “great bones.” 

Does this type of verbiage help a seller know what the property offers?  I am not sure all buyers understand the reference.

What does it mean?

It means it may not be perfect but…
  • Maybe the roof is still doing its job.
  • Maybe all the major systems are still functioning like the AC/Heat, septic, electrical, etc.
  • Maybe the layout is really functional (well designed).
  • Maybe with some work it will be your pride and joy!
The key here is that deep down it is good but you must look beyond that rough exterior...sort of like your parents did the first time you brought your better half home!
