Inspecting a Prospective House

  • You want a house that meets or compromises your needs. You want a certain number of rooms and you want to be sure your house has that. Some areas can be compromised like a smaller kitchen space or one less bathroom and so on. You essentially want to figure out what you can compromise on and what is non-negotiable.

  • You should ideally have a house inspector or contractor come in and examine the house to let you know whether or not there are any underlying issues in the wiring, plumbing, check for asbestos in case it is an older house, and so on. This gives you a better composite for what work may be needed and whether or not you want to commit to that.
  • The neighborhood is also very important, so you want to be around a community that feels safe and welcoming. You plan on spending your entire life here, so you are not just committing to the house, you are committing to the neighborhood as well.
  • You want to look into how much commuting would be involved to get to work, school, stores, and other essential stores and services.
