It is necessary to ask some crucial questions from the seller of your new home. No house is 100% perfect for you at the point of sale. You must, therefore, seek to learn whatever issues the house may have so that you can appropriately weigh your options before deciding to buy and be adequately prepared to handle them if you choose to buy it. While some sellers may volunteer that information, it is not incorrect to assume that most will not, hence the need to ask these questions:

  • Is the house or neighborhood flood-prone? Issues like flooding, water pipe-burst, or water poisoning sometimes never go away permanently. So, it is best you are aware ahead of time. Some neighborhoods are more prone to flooding during raining season and knowing these details might be crucial to your convenient stay. Knowledge of previous occurrences will help you keep an eye out for repeat situations so that you can address them early enough.
  • When was the house roofed and how does the material age? Older portions of the structure such as the roof may be quite expensive to replace. On the average, an asphalt roof may last as long as 10 to 15 years before needing repairs or replacement, so factor in the age of the roof before you decide to make your offer to the buyer. Find out about the material used to make the roof too, as some are more expensive than others when it comes to replacement. You should also ask for documentation about repair work done on any part of the house, so you have it for future references.
  • How is sewage disposed of in the building? Does the house have a septic tank or is it connected to the local sewage system? You need to be aware of that. A home with a private septic tank needs to be pumped out averagely every 4 to 5 years, so knowing the last time they had it pumped will give you an idea of when you might need to pump it again after you move in.
  • How does the neighborhood look? Buyers sometimes assume that they are only interested in the property since they will be paying for just the house, however, you are buying more than that. You are obtaining the value of the neighborhood too. So you should ask questions about the type of community it is. Do drugs and gangs overrun it? Is the public school system good enough for your kids? Is it too close to the freeway?

Seeking answers to each of these questions will help you to make informed decisions when buying a house.

You've probably seen tons of information on finding the best home for the needs of the adults, children and even elderly members of your family, but what about your four-legged family members? Not all dogs are created equal, and if you're going to be a good dog owner, it is important to think of your pets' needs as well. Don't have a dog yet, but want one? Plan in advance by purchasing a home that will already have everything you need.

Outdoor Features

If you have or want to have outdoor pets, it is essential to ensure you have enough space. Some cities have specific space requirements depending on the size or breed of your dog, but even if they don't, you want to be sure your dog isn't uncomfortable. A dog who is used to large running spaces can go nuts with only access to a small townhouse patio or yard. No matter what size of yard you choose, remember that you will be in charge of cleaning it up. Pet defecation is more evident in a smaller yard; especially if you have a large dog. Plan to train your dog to use only a particular area of the yard as his "bathroom" and prepare the are with scoopers or bags so you can regularly clean it up. 

Your dog will also need a space to call his own that's far enough away from the bathroom area. Try setting up a covered area or a dog house to give him somewhere to go. If you live in a high-precipitation area, make sure your dog as a dry refuge when it's pouring out. Similarly, in snowy climates, make sure your dog house is well insulated and equipped with a warm bed to keep them comfortable all winter long.

Indoor Features

For indoor only or indoor/outdoor dogs, your interior layout and features come into play. Smaller dogs with furry feet often get going super quickly indoors and can slide around on tile or wood flooring. Plan for that by including rugs in walking spaces and keeping low walls clear of dangerous objects into which your dog might slide. Interior dogs can be especially hard on a carpet. For best results, ensure you have a heavy-duty rug that can take some damage and is easy to clean, such as the same carpet you would choose for small children. Watch the length of your dog's nails, since overly-long sharp nails can gouge your flooring and paint jobs.

Tell your real estate professional about any pets during the buying process so they can assist you in finding that special property for your four-legged friends.
