6 Common Home Inspection Findings That Every Buyer Should Know

  1. 1. 6 Common Home Inspection Findings That Every Buyer Should Know
  2. 2. Before you purchase any of the charming Candlewood Lake waterfront homes for sale, one of the smartest things you can do is to have it inspected. This will ensure that there is nothing significantly wrong with the property you want to buy.
  3. 3. Here are some common home inspection findings that you should know:
  4. 4. Old appliances Appliances have life spans that could be shortened if they are not regularly maintained. Keep in mind that the cost of replacing appliances can be expensive and should be considered.
  5. 5. Before purchasing any waterfront homes in Candlewood Lake, do some research on the year, brand and model of the major appliances included in the sale for you to get a clear picture of what you are buying.
  6. 6. Faulty Electrical Wiring Faulty electrical wiring is one of the common causes of house fires. While modern homes have enough electrical outlets, some older ones do not. If you see extension cords, check how these are used in the home.
  7. 7. Overloading an extension cord could eventually lead to a fire. Another typical problem is having exposed electrical wires. These exposed wires can cause accidents - from an electrical shock to a house fire. This issue should be immediately corrected by a licensed electrician.
  8. 8. Plumbing problems Another common inspection finding is leaks in the plumbing underneath sinks and around toilets. Corroded plumbing pipes or a broken seal around the toilet are some of the possible causes for this problem.
  9. 9. Homes that are older usually have galvanized water main that result to poor water pressure. The corrosion inside the pipe is a main factor. Newer homes now use copper water main line, which eliminates the water pressure issue.
  10. 10. Poor drainage One of the main problems that will end a real estate sale really quick is water issue. Nobody wants to live in a flooded home. Before purchasing any Candlewood waterfront homes, verify if it has adequate drainage to deal with area rainfall. A home that is damaged by water can result to requiring expensive repairs and dealing with mold infestation.
  11. 11. Cooling or heating systems Another possible problem that can surface during a home inspection is the cooling or heating system issues. Temperature control system wear out over time. They can also be expensive to replace. To be sure, check on the age, integrity, and maintenance schedule of any heating or cooling system in the home.
  12. 12. As a buyer, you may also check the current owners’ upkeep of these items. A well-maintained boiler can last thirty years or more. On the other hand, the same boiler can last half as long if maintenance and regular servicing are neglected.
  13. 13. Termites and other pests It can be pretty disheartening to learn that termites have been munching on the home that you are planning to buy. This is one problem that you should not ignore as it can get worse over time. Termites have the ability to destroy the structural integrity of a home. The same is true for any pests like ants, cockroaches, and mice.
