When shopping for a home it is important to consider the short term and long term. Some long-term items that are often overlooked are future home repairs or replacement of major parts of your home.
Make sure you have a qualified inspector go through your new home and check electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems.
You can use these inspections to help negotiate the repair of these systems prior to closing and avoid major repair issues in the future. Also, have your roof inspected.
This inspection should note any sagging, shingle issues or possible water leaks. While inspecting the roof, take note of tree limbs that may hang over the home and the cost of removing these potential hazards.
