Looking for a new home can be exciting — and overwhelming.
In order to properly assess the quality of a house, there are some key things you should check out early on as you’re going through a showing, before you put in an offer.
Take a look at these videos featuring tips from a licensed home inspector to help you evaluate different parts of the house, from the foundation all the way up to the roof. That way, you may be able to make a more informed decision about putting in an offer. Think of it as your own little pre-inspection.
Keep in mind, these are only a few of the items you should look at. Every house is different, so make sure to have your future home inspected by a professional home inspector before making that final decision to purchase. And, don’t forget, your real estate agent will also be a great resource to answer your questions and help you make the smartest decisions.
