Your Realtor® is taking you to view homes for sale - how do you compare them in order to make the right decision for the right house?
We've made that comparison a little easier for you with a Property Checklist:
Complete the checklist for each home you tour to quickly compare the features of each home.
Consider neighborhood influences; location of schools, busy streets, industrial or commercial developments, and condition of other homes in the immediate area.
Hire a professional to conduct a property inspection once you have narrowed down your selection to one home.
A Home Inspection gives you more detailed information about the overall condition of the home. A qualified inspector takes an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home to:
Evaluate the physical condition, structure, construction, and mechanical systems
Identify items that need to be repaired or replaced
Estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems, equipment, structure, and finishes
