What to ask and think about before you write an offer on a home!

  • Is the home in a flood zone?
  • How much updating will I have to do to make it the home I want to live in?
  • Does the ground slope away from the home and not toward the home(for flooding purposes)?
  • Is there any funny smell in the house?
  • Are the windows fogged or do they need to be replaced?
  • How do the neighbors yards and houses look? Do they have lots of junk and trash outside of their home?
  • Are there major repairs that need to be done to the foundation, roof, walls, heat and air, etc?
  • What have the homes in the neighborhood sold for price wise?
  • How long has the home been on the market?
  • What is on the Property Condition Disclosure?
  • Will my car fit in the garage?
  • Do you have your preapproval letter from your lender or mortgage broker? Or do they have all of the information they need to start the loan process?
