What to Ask When Viewing Houses for Sale
Your realtor has seen hundreds of homes and can help you find the features and shortcomings of each property. When viewing houses, make sure you’re getting all the information you need by asking a few simple questions like what are the best features of the home. You will be drawn to certain qualities, but you may miss others. Ask your agent to highlight the home’s top attributes.
Ask about the negatives of the property. Just like quality features, there may be some drawbacks you don’t notice. An experienced agent will see things you might look over such as potential issues with the property’s layout, lighting, traffic flow, and more.
Be sure to ask if any repairs are needed. Even though an inspection will be done prior to closing, it’s best to find out if major repairs are required before you make an offer. Finally, ask if the home is priced fairly. Your realtor will be able to gauge whether or not the price is right for the home’s location and condition.
Finding the Right Home for You
If there’s something you absolutely must have—or don’t want—let your realtor know. In addition to asking the right questions, there are other things to keep in mind. Be aware of the home’s location. If it’s on a busy street or next to a commercial zone, how will that affect your quality of life? How might it impact the resale value?
A home may fit you now, but your situation can change in a year or two. Is the yard large enough for a future pet? If you’re planning to have children, are there enough bedrooms to accommodate a growing family? Or maybe you’re looking for property with a waterfront view? When purchasing a home, it’s always a great idea to look ahead. This way, you can find something that will suit you now, as well as in the next 5 or 10 years.
Discussing your needs and expectations with your real estate agent will help you narrow down properties and find the home that’s right for you. Our trusted staff at William Taylor Real Estate Team will guide you through the entire home buying and selling process.
