As a buyer I will want one of the three things that you mentioned, that is not there currently. But everyone is different in their choices.

If this house is truly for you, the number of showings is irrelevant. For that matter, nothing in any of your posts have indicated this house is for you.
I'm frankly bewildered by your posted house search. Whether or not this house or any house you've looked at is right or wrong is not for us to decide, but for you.

If someone who saw this house today bids more than us and if we aren't willing to do a bidding war, then the house won't be for us.

Simple as that.

If no one bites, then likely the house will be ours. I like this house - just not at the asking price.

I know EXACTLY which home you're talking about, pinipig523. The inside is absolutely gorgeous and is on a beautiful corner lot. The finish out is fresh and not that old world goop that has been so overdone, not to mention that floating staircase!

If I were you, I would snatch it up soon. A few thousand for backyard landscaping and you're set.

This is a nice house but landscaping,pool,media room cost a lot more than few thousand.I would rather buy a house where these things are already there and just need sprucing up. If I have to spend 100k-200k more than I'll find an older home at a better location for a better value and update that to my taste and requirement. Just my 1.9 cents.

If there are minor things to refurbish (like closet rods, ceiling beams needs re-caulk and repainting, minor water stains need repainting in the garage) or things like replacing the rails of the kitchen cabinets/drawers with soft close rails or say that you just wanted to do some touch up here and there... but you're not handy and you're pretty terrible at it - who do you hire?

Do you just hire a regular contractor or handyman? How do you guys do it other than doing it yourself?

To spruce up a used home?

You talk to your realtor and neighbors for recommendations, then interview, get quotes and hire someone.

Good luck!
