What you really want is a cozy family room, a big kitchen, a large master bedroom with separate walk-in-closets, new carpet, a super theater room, etc. All the realtor wants you to focus on is where the darn house is located and what the relative property values are; and, of course, the highest purchase price you can possibly afford (or not) to increase their commission.

If you could list the 3 secrets of collections success it would be Contacts, Contacts, Contacts.
