We're talking a big yard but you have to walk up a few steps to get to the flat area on top. Would you buy this house if everything else fit but this was the only thing that could be a resale issue? I don't want to buy a house that won't resale in the future.


INSERTED PICTURE ON PAGE 4 OF VERY SIMILAR LAYOUT OF THIS BACKYARD. ****

No I need acreage, pool, place for my dog to run and kids to play.

I would love that. But if you are worried about resale just redo the landscape.

Is there area for sitting, playing, a pool, etc?

Yes. It's just not a flat lot as soon as you walk out of back door. You walk out door and have to walk up four steps, then it's flat. Hope that makes sense.

Quoting bellawomen: Is there area for sitting, playing, a pool, etc?

 No. I had a house like that for 6 years. The backyard was virtualy unusable. We did wind up selling to a single divorced guy who didn't really care.

That sounds like it could cause drainage issues.

No. Water finds the lowest point to settle, and it rains often here... so the portion of my yard I'd be walking into would be the constant puddle? No thanks.
