When embarking on a tour to look for a home, you need to be alert about a few things that will help you take the right decision. Besides looking for the kerb appeal, many other things demand the attention of the buyer. Let us look at these factors and how they can impact your decision.
- Check the foundation
For any home, its foundation is the most important aspect. If there are any leaks, cracks or buckling signs in the foundation, it is wise to pass on that home or get it evaluated by an engineer who can suggest structural repairs. Maybe these repairs can help to stabilise the foundation, but if not, it is not wise to buy the house.
- Water Damage
Check about the water damage in the house which may be seen as stains or cracks on the wall. If there are water signs on the walls of the basement, it may be due to a leakage in the foundation. Also, check the roof for leakage or pipe burst. It may be dangerous for the overall strength of the home. If the house is not solid, it may have cracks, leakage and other signs of wear and tear quite often. Such a house is not worth buying.
- Check the mechanical systems
When touring a house, it is wise to check the mechanical systems of the house thoroughly. Get an expert and get Heating, Air Conditioning and Ventilation, and garage door opening systems tested to ensure if they are working fine. Checking it now may help you save a lot of time, and bucks in the longer run. If there is any problem in any of these systems, it is better to get them replaced well in advance, or if replacing the system is not in the budget, it is better to look for another home with better and highly functional systems in place.
- Check the electrical systems
Another factor that requires thorough checking out is the electrical systems. Hire an experienced electrician to get the electric panels, fuse box, circuit breakers, etc checked. If there is any issue with systems, it may require replacement. Again if replacing the whole system along with faulty wires is not possible, it is better to move on and look at another option.
- Check out the garage door opener
Though it is a very simple mechanical system, it is better to see if it is functioning properly. You would not like to move in the house and park your car in the garage with a faulty garage opening system. The system is not too pricey and can be replaced affordably.
Thus, when planning to look for houses for sale, it is important to look beyond the kerb appeal of the house and check the important aspects of the home.
