Before you make an offer on your dream home, look for the following.
An Outdated Heating System
Replacing a heating system could be an expensive fix. Check the unit’s serial number for the age. Also check for moisture or cracks.
This could be a deal breaker. Check with your municipality for flood zones. Even if you’re in the clear, double check your drainage pipes. They should re-route excess water away from the home.
Stains or Dampness
Mold could be a costly fix. Look for water stains and pay attention to funny smells. Specifically look around baseboards and on the ceilings.
These problems could require unaffordable repairs. So, check for signs before making an offer.
