Before you put in an offer, double-check that all major improvements were permitted. Here’s why…
If the work wasn’t approved, it could fail to meet state regulations. This could be dangerous.
Say you buy a home with DIY improvements that weren’t permitted. You could have trouble selling the home in the future.
Your rate could skyrocket. Or you could have issues finding a policy because of the added risk.
Sometimes the improvements weren’t completed by the current sellers. So you’ll have to gauge the risk.
Before buying a home with unpermitted projects, consider all of these factors.
