What should you look for when shopping for your first home? Here are some great tips courtesy of Double C Home Inspections!
1. How long has the home been on the market? If the home has been available for an extended period of time, it may mean that contracts haven't worked out for other potential buyers, sometimes due to "failed" home inspections.
2. New paint? New flooring? New fixtures? May be a "flipper" house. This means that the home was bought recently for the express purpose of a quick resale with minimal investment. Though not necessarily a bad thing, it can mean that cosmetic repairs were made to a home that may have needed much more extensive repairs.
3. Does the home look like it is loved? If it looks like the home was treated like a treasured possession, many times the previous owner has made some effort to maintain the home properly, as in the HVAC system, roof, etc. These can be costly repairs if the these systems haven't been maintained.
