But unless you’re familiar with house hunting, the listings can be a bit tricky to decipher, and each one may seem like “the right one.”

Instead of wasting time viewing homes that could end up being a total disappointment, the team at Canadian real estate company Properly would like to offer some advice to buyers:

  2. Beware of certain terms: “cosy”, “beloved”, “top repairer”, “great potential”, or “do-it-yourselfer/developer’s dream”. All of these may sound like good things, but they’re really just positive ways to alert you to less-than-positive features of a home.
