I have been looking for a new granite to put in the kitchen. I have old fashioned formica counter tops that show stains and will not let them leave, no matter how hard I scrub. The rest of my house is updated, I just have to finish the old kitchen that I have. When I bought my house, I lived in a Singapore new futura condo and I was really happy to see how many people were also living there while they were looking for a house to buy. The problem is that my new condo was so nice, I expected my new house to be at least the same level. However, I could not afford to buy an entire house that was new and renovated like my condo. I think it is funny how young people watch all of the new kind of home shows, where the people on TV are spending a small fortune on a new house, and they are all brand new.
Reality is, it is not feasible to look at the TV shows and think that since the people on TV are paying a lot for a house that is up to date that you will find the same thing in your area for half the price. This kind of misconception is leaving a lot of younger people feeling that they are not good enough to buy things that they can see people doing on TV. Think it is important for people in the local real estate sector to explain to new and young home buyers that what they see on TV and on social media is not exactly what reality is like. It is not feasible to think that for one hundred thousand dollars they will get a brand new house with everything they are looking for in a major metro area.
