The Neighborhood: I know the home has your attention, you like it, it has curb appeal, it's just what you wanted. First things first! Look around the area. Are there more than a few homes for sale on the same block? Are the local businesses boarded up or looking shabby? If so get the scoop as to why.
                                                BEFORE YOU BUY IS THE BEST TIME TO KNOW !


Time Of Day:  Have a look around the home and see what is going on a few different times of the day. What you see on your first visit may not be what you see at another time of day or night!
                                                BEFORE YOU BUY IS THE BEST TIME TO KNOW !


 Maintenance: Plants growing in the gutters, or the front door needs attention? These are signs the homeowner has not been looking after the home. What else is in need of tender loving care?

Windows: Windows are not only for looking out of, they insulate the home. Double Pane are better insulators than Single Pane but they may not function as intended if there is a seal leak. Foggy windows are a sign the seals are damaged and in need of repair or replacement!
                                                BEFORE YOU BUY IS THE BEST TIME TO KNOW !



Hidden Damage: A fresh coat of paint can really make the place look new but can also hide a great deal of imperfections or worst yet damage. Damage can include but is not limited to water damage, mold, mildew, or structure changes or repairs. None of which is good if a load bearing wall has been shortened or removed.
                                                BEFORE YOU BUY IS THE BEST TIME TO KNOW ! 
 


Foundation And Walls: Deflections in the roof line and/or walls are a sign there may be something wrong with the foundation. Uneven window/door openings can be another.

These may be very costly to repair.
