I ran across a great article about things first time home buyers should be on the look out for. Here is a condensed version:
- Inspect the foundation
- Check the HVAC equipment
- Check the electrical system
- Look for past water damage
- Get a home inspection
- Consider that if the price is "too good to be true" then it probably is
I want to add, it is a great idea to arm yourself with the additional protection of getting a realtor. A realtor has seen lots of transactions and knows the ins and outs of the contracts you may not be familiar with. A realtor can also come in handy because they know the process of buying an home, and can make the transition go smoothly for you. And besides, the cost of using a realtor to the buyer is $0 -- that means the service is FREE to you.
