When you are getting ready to buy a home, knowledge really is power. Your Columbus real estate agents are committed to providing you with all the important information you need to make an informed decision. Here are some questions that you should have your Columbus real estate agents ask so that you can understand the state of the house you are considering.
First, ask about the service schedule of the appliances. Your Columbus real estate agents can ask the seller about how old the appliances are and can also ask about the maintenance schedule of the appliances. It will help you know what you are getting into with all the major appliances.
Moisture can be a real problem in many homes. Your Columbus real estate agents can talk to the buyer about whether mold has been treated in the house or if there is evidence of mold. The sellers are bound by law to disclose mold problems, but it is good to specifically ask.
The electrical system is the lifeblood of any home. Have your Columbus real estate agents make sure that the home passed all inspections of the electrical system, especially if the sellers finished sections of the home on their own.
You also want to make sure that the HVAC systems are up to par. Your Columbus real estate agents will help you find out what kinds of maintenance your heater or air conditioning unit have undergone so that you can make sure they will be in good repair when you move in.
The windows in the home are an important way for you to keep energy costs low. If the windows are old, you may consider upgrading the windows.
