“Lets Talk Real Estate! ” OPEN HOUSE RED FLAGS” August 16th, 2023

Mid Realty officeJarlynn Hyde


Open houses aren’t simply about checking out the house’s layout and peeking at the appliances; It’s about keeping your eyes open and looking for potential problems.  Often, open houses have been deep-cleaned and staged with stylish furniture.  Don’t be fooled by a place that looks and smells nice; sometimes an overly scented home could be hiding a bigger problem.  It’s essential to check for how well the windows have been installed and how easily they open.  Potential buyers should consider inspecting the floors for warping and the walls for cracks, which can signify foundation problems.  Mold is something else to look for you, signs of which can be often be found underneath kitchen and bathroom sinks.  Your real estate agent will no doubt give you the fundamentals of any property you view, but your own personal observations will tell you more of the details that, good or bad, made an impression on you. You can then consider these details at your leisure or when you are comparing them to the next open house you attend.  Decisions are easier when you have a professional on your side.  Call us for an appointment today. “OUR SUCCESS HAS BEEN BUILT ONE SATISIFIED CUSTOMER AT A TIME.”
