STUDY: Baby Goats Add Cuteness, Resale Value to Property
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to a study published in Better Homes and Gardens magazine, the addition of baby goats can dramatically affect the value of a home at selling time.
"Most people think adding a deck or repainting can boost home equity," says real estate expert Mark Kramer. "This mindset is outmoded though - if you add just one baby goat, the resale value of your home will skyrocket. I personally had no idea."
Citing a strong seller’s market and a large number of baby goats, Kramer says 2014 is the best year ever to cut your losses and turn a profit.
"Look, buyers are a lot less savvy then we give them credit for," says Kramer. "They drive a hard bargain but throw in some cute baby goats and they’ll empty their wallets. It’s simple economics, really."
The study also suggested the use of koalas at the closing table for maximum leverage.
