Things to Look for When Buying a Home

Things to look for when buying a home, obviously is having a reliable real estate agent that knows the market. All of a sudden you find a home that you really love and you put an offer and it's accepted, come to find out there is a fire hall right across the road that's proposed to be built and you didn't know that all hours of the day, sirens are going off. So a knowledge of the market, zoning and development going on would definitely be key. If you have the opportunity to do a home inspection, the home inspector can only see what you and I can see. So potentially like vermiculite insulation behind the walls, potentially knob and tube wiring or cast lead plumbing, perhaps things that weren't visually seen on home inspection. So those could be a surprise that you could come across.
