When I do an open house or put a house up for sale, I always get a few questions about features that I always say, why do you want that. Here they are:

1. Central Vacuum: Why do you want to lug around a snake and try to clean the house? Its simple, its called Dyson. Dyson makes some of the best cordless, or corded vacuums on the market. Get out of the 80’s and get one of these. They clean better, and you don’t have to carry a snake around the house scratching your floors.

2. Stainless Steel appliances: Yes when they first came out, they were flashy, and they still do look better than cheap white appliances, but, its not new. You can buy nice ivory or black or other colours now.

3. Dining Rooms

Separate Dining rooms or “Show Rooms” I like to call them are a thing of the past. Nobody really uses them, and it generally a waste of space, you use once or twice a year. Yes, there are a few people that use them regularly, but most people don’t. Look for a house with a bigger kitchen, bigger living area, or open concept.

4. Huge Frontage

Who uses the front of their house grass? You want the space to be in the backyard. Look for houses which are bigger in the back, and minimal in the front.

5. Gyms or amenities

For those that live in Condos, gyms and pools and amenities are rarely used. Most gyms in condos suck and are small, and most don’t use the pool or amenities. Its better to find a condo that doesn’t have these so the fees are cheaper and you can spend your money on a proper gym.
