I just read the Horizon article "7 Things in Your House That Could Explode" and thought it was well worth sharing. http://www.horizonservicesinc.com/blog-posts/heating-services/7-things-in-your-house-that-could-explode
Your water heater can explode. Not sure if most people know it but the pressure relief valve should be replaced every three years. I think most of us have a hot water heater installed and then as long as we have enough hot water, we tend to ignore it until say... 14 years later... when it leaks and we install a new one.

In many instances an agent may overlook the obvious when the excitement of obtaining a new buyer has us ready to jump in the car and run out to listings. Wait! These questions should be asked before you even mention of number of bedrooms. These will save everyone time and money!
