When you first view a new house, it’s important to remember that your initial first impression might be a bit lofty compared to reality. You’re excited, because you’re buying a house! You’re less likely to notice any small imperfections that might jump out at you later. Along with viewing a home more than once, it’s wise to bring a checklist with you to any home viewing so you can make notes for later and help you compare between which of the homes you’re viewing will have fewer minor repairs involved.
For example, did you remember to check behind any closed doors? Is there enough storage space for your kids’ sports equipment, for clothing or for linen? Are the floors firm and solid, with no squeaks or soft sections? Did you check all of the lights and faucets?
Royal LePage has a great Home Viewing checklist on their website. Print it out and take it with you to every home viewing, so you don’t miss anything!
