This article from MSN Real Estate is a great reminder of what to look for as you walk through a home.
You're in the market for a home, you've seen the listings online and you've put together a short list of potential properties. There's even one with the exact number of bedrooms you need, just enough square footage, and that renovated kitchen you've been dreaming of – and it all looks good in the photos.
But while a picture online can say a thousand words, seeing a home in person truly speaks volumes. Visiting a property is your first opportunity to "kick the tires." Of course, the first instinct at an open house is to run straight to the kitchen, the master bedroom, and bathrooms, but when pounding the pavement scoping out prospective homes, don't overlook these nine critical areas.
1. The neighborhood
You have to remember that you're not just buying a house, you're buying a neighborhood, too. And that, perhaps, is the most important takeaway from seeing a property in person. During your visit, though, be sure to pay attention to traffic speeds, the condition of other homes in the area, and whether or not there's plentiful access to amenities your family needs.
