House Buying!!!

Hello All!!!  We are pleased to announce that God has blessed us with the opportunity to begin picking out the next Zoo habitat!!!  We will be shopping for probably forever, but He will guide us and we are very excited!!!

In honor of this, I found a list of questions to ask before you have a home inspected once you pick the one of your family Zoo needs.  So, I’m passing it on to you!  Ready, here goes!

Why is it being sold?
Are there any problems with the house?
Ask for the utility bills for the last year.
Talk to the neighbors about the area.
Take notes when you look at the house.
Does the yard slope towards the house (drainage problem)?
How many years does the roofing have left?
Do all the windows open?
Does the wiring look normal and up-to-date?
Are there any cracks in the foundation?
Are the fences in good shape?
Are there any problems with the driveway?
Is the garage floor cracked?
Does the garage door work fine?
What interior fixtures are included?
Are there sufficient outlets in every room?
Flush the toilet and try all faucets.
Test all lights and ceiling fans.
Test the stove and other appliances that are included.
Look in the attic for evidence of animals.
Is there sufficient insulation?
Is the roof sagging?
Are any of the walls cracked or sagging?
Are the ceilings in good shape?
Are there fuses or breakers (the latter are preferable)?
Does the furnace look okay?
Does the water heater look okay?
Is there any moisture in the basement?
Do the floor beams look good?
Do the supports look okay?
Does the sump pump work?
Are there any cracks in the basement floor?
Do the stairs sag when stepped on?

What does your intuition tell you?

  1. My best advice is don’t buy more house than you can afford. We bought our little house in 1989 & it was less than what the Realtor suggested we could afford. Twenty yrs later we’re glad we bought small.

    By the way, my house wouldn’t pass your inspection but I’ll keep it anyway. ;o)
