If you’re looking for your nexthome, understanding the difference between minor issues and true deal-breakerscan help you evaluate your options and make the best possible choice.
• Cosmetic – All aesthetic concerns can be fixed – for a cost. The key is tounderstand the difficulty and level of effort or money involved. A dyinglawn can be addressed with new sod. Is the kitchen dated? A newbacksplash is relatively inexpensive. With some fresh paint and new lightingfixtures, you can easily brighten a room and make a small space seem moreexpansive.
• Healthy Homes – Many homes have older carpet, drapes, and otherelements that can irritate allergies. Home air filtration systems areaffordable and very effective in clearing the particulates out of the air.Replacing the attic insulation and cleaning the vents are easy andinexpensive ways to correct these situations.
• Foundation Problems – Foundation cracks and other issues can beexpensive or impossible to correct.
• Mold – While treatments for mold are available, they normally involvemajor demolition to open walls and flooring for access. Unless the sellerswill correct the mold issue before closing, it’s better to reconsider on thisone.
• Water Leaks – Signs of water damage or existing leaks could be a reason tosearch for a different home. Leaks and water issues will most likely bringyou to the mold issue above.
