If you are looking to move into your first home, congratulations. This is a big accomplishment and something you should celebrate. However, before signing the paperwork be sure to check a couple of things.
The most important thing in a house is the foundation. Prior to purchasing a house, ensure the foundation is checked for any cracks, leaks, or other problems. Foundation repair can cost a lot and sometimes can’t be fixed. For that reason, you want to ensure that you know what you are getting into prior to signing.
Another common issue, particularly with older properties, are the property lines. Knowing exactly where your property is will help to resolve any future disputes or issues with your neighbors. Having someone come out to mark exactly where your property is prior to purchasing the home is something that will benefit you in the long run.
