Things to Look at When You're Shopping for a New House
Shopping for a new home in St. Johns can be an overwhelming experience. Finding the right house in the right neighborhood with the right look and feel at a price you can afford can feel like waiting for the stars to align. However, you definitely don't want to get into the wrong house and end up spending tens of thousands of dollars extra in repairs and upgrades. Make sure your new home ticks all the right boxes by following this home shopping checklist.
Check the Roof
Even the best looking roofs in nice neighborhoods can have leaks hiding just beneath the surface. The slightest crack in your roof's shingles or the decking can cause a chink in your home's armor. Left unchecked, these slow roof leaks can cause some major water damage that can cost you thousands to fix. And while aesthetics are important, don't just eyeball the roof. Hire a full blown roofing company to do a proper inspection. They know about all of the common problem areas that could cause you trouble down the road. Most roofing companies will do an inspection for free, but even if you're out a couple hundred bucks, it's better than being out
Check the Pipes
There's more to your home's plumbing than the toilets. Your sinks, hot water heater, washing machine, outdoor spigots, bath tubs, and showers all tie into your home's plumbing system. The last thing you need after moving into your new home is your hot water heater flooding the house or the shower springing a leak. Even mold is a major health hazard that could make you or your family sick. Much like your roof, any major issues with the plumbing can be one of those nasty hidden costs that make your new home wreck your wallet. Take the time to hire a plumber to go cover all the bases and make sure you don't have any surprises.
This is going to be your new home. Light switches, door knobs, doors, anything and everything that can move needs to be checked. While everything doesn't have to work, it's good to know what you're getting into and you can even make a "to do list" for the sellers to complete before you're willing to sign. You even need to taste the water. Seriously! The house you're looking at could check all the boxes for being your dream home, but if the water smells, that's a deal breaker. Check everything!
Trying to heat or cool a house that doesn't have enough insulation in the attic is going to cost you an arm and a leg. All of that hot or cold air will just escape and leave you with a giant hole in your pocket. And that's not even counting how uncomfortable it is too! Poke your head in the attic to see how the insulation looks and if it's looking a little thin, add it to the list of things for the seller to do!
