As you’ll see in this video, many of your home buying questions should focus on potential problems and maintenance issues.
Does anything need to be replaced? What things require ongoing maintenance like paint, roof, heating and AC, appliances and carpet?
When buying a house, also ask about the property and neighborhood focusing on quality of life issues. Be sure the home seller’s or real estate agent’s answers are clear and complete.
Like this buying a home video says, ask questions until you understand all of the information they’ve given.
Making a list of questions ahead of time will help you organize your thoughts and arrange all of the information you receive. The HUD Home Scorecard can help you develop your question list and keep a record for each potential home you are looking to purchase.
