What To Look for When Viewing Homes

Consider these to make the process productive:

  • Does the home have your “needs” (the features you must have)? For example, number of bedrooms, closet space, kitchen size, etc.
  • Does the home have any of your “wants” (the features you’d like to have but would be willing to forgo)? For example, large backyard deck, spacious family room, etc.
  • What is the general condition of the home? Are there signs that the owners have kept up with repairs and maintenance?
  • Will the home need any major repairs, remodeling or renovations? Is there anything, such as the furnace, that may need to be replaced soon?
  • What do you like most about the home?
  • Is there anything about the home you don’t like? Can that be changed with a remodeling or renovation now or in the future?
  • Take a walk around the neighborhood. Are the homes well-kept, indicating pride of ownership?
  • Do you like where the home is situated in the neighborhood?
  • Does the neighborhood have what you want? For example, access to public transit, shopping, local parks, etc.
