You got your approval letter from the bank, down payment is burning a hole at said bank and you have your checklist for your dream home. Now comes the fun part or at least it should be fun...home touring. While you tour home after home and things start becoming a blurr...what are things you should look out for… what are red flags? Don’t ever, ever pay attention to the decor! That poop brown in the living room can be painted, 1970 counters can be updated, and the immensely stained carpet can be changed...those are easy fixes and maybe even concessions when you negotiate the purchase.
So what could be a bigger issue?
Is there damp? Notice if there is a moldy smell, flaky plaster, and any watermarks.
How much storage is there?
