Red Flags when Searching for a Home
It's time to tour a handful of homes. YES!! Several already have a piece of your heart...after all, the price is right and the photos are stunning.
Hang on there, friend!
Before you go giving your whole heart away, keep an eye out for the following 10 signs of trouble as you check out homes in person.
Visible cracks in the foundation cracks
Damp or musty smell
Water stains on ceilings
Doors that won’t close
Evidence of active insect colonies
Strong air fresheners + fresh paint (Hmm…)
Lots of homes for sale on the same street
Standing water in the yard (front or back)
Current owners haven’t lived there long
Each of these by itself may not present a huge issue, but string a couple of them together, and you’ve got a good reason to press pause.
That’s why an experienced agent who knows what to look for is money when you’re house hunting. Looking for an agent like that? Send me a DM — I’d love to connect and help you find the right home for you!
