Congrats! You’ve found the home of your dreams, but before you sign on the dotted line or fully move into the home, make sure you’ve checked all of these tasks off of your new home checklist.
Check for Mold
Mold is an invasive and toxic substance that is often found in homes. Sometimes, it’s a quick fix and just requires a quick spray of a cleaning solution, but other times it is far more widespread than one individual can manage. In these cases, contact our team for our professional removal services.
Check for Water Damage
Another sneaky offender in the home is water damage. It can pop up just about anywhere and even stay hidden for months. Whether you see obvious signs of water damage or not, you should still schedule an inspection just to be sure there’s nothing hidden in the walls or roof.
Check the Carpet
Unless you bought a house with the intention of it being a fixer-upper, most people want to be able to move right in without needing to renovate anything, especially something as expansive as the flooring. Make sure to inspect the quality of the carpet before you move in and see whether it needs a deep cleaning or whether it needs to be replaced.
Often, the information you gain from these inspections can be used as negotiation tactics in the purchase process. You’ll sometimes be able to get the price of the house lowered or get the seller of the house to cover the cost of damage and replacement when necessary.
