Categories: For Buyers
I saw a funny description in the MLS today. In the advertising remarks for a property listed for sale at an asking price of well over a million dollars, it said:
“A must see for the savvy home buyer not willing to pay high RE TAX & maint fees for superfluous amenities.”
I thought to myself, isn’t that an oxymoron?
Amenity is defined as –
Superfluous is defined as:
It made me wonder, how could something at the same time be desirable, useful and unnecessary?
Either you want a gym, parking, a doorman and a pool or you don’t. If you do desire those things, then they are not superfluous. On the other hand, if you don’t care about them or find them useful then they are not amenities. But superfluous amenities doesn’t make sense, to me at least.
Either way, you will pay dearly for this particular property, without a pool, parking, doorman, gym or outdoor space. The taxes alone are over a grand a month.
