I am posting today as I am going to be looking at my first property soon and was wondering what questions I should be asking the seller about the property to make sure everything is in good standing. Any feedback is much appreciated!
Thank you and have a great day!
Are they the owners or are they renting? That's always a good one. Renters won't treat the property like an owner would in most cases
Ask when the roof, water heater, and HVAC was replaced. When was the electrical updated if the house is old (built before the 90's in most cases).
Ask if they've had to install extra pillars or fix the foundation. Ask about water damage. Check to see if there are any cracks along the slab or brick that the house is on. Check to see if there are tarps in the crawl space. Turn on hot water and check to see if it turns hot in a reasonable amount of time. Check electrical box to see if it has breakers.
I know this is an older post, and I hope you had good luck in your search. Just thought this would be helpful in the future.
