So you’ve found the home of your dreams? It’s in the perfect location and has everything that you want… but once you move in you find it has leaks, mildew or worse still – white ants!
When you are looking to buy a house there are a few crucial things to look out for so that you don’t end up paying a lot of money later on to fix it. Hiring a professional inspector is always a good idea but there are some of the things that you should look out for when inspecting a property, so you can eliminate homes from your checklist early on.
There is a great Archicentre checklist
that you can use when inspecting a property, which I recommend you print off and take to your next home inspection.
But if you are the seller don’t be nervous because you can use this checklist too to make sure you are aware of any possible problems there may be with your house, so that you can fix any issues before it comes time to sell.
Hope it helps!
