When searching for your dream home, it is probably a pretty common assumption that you will be making your way to various open houses. This is the perfect opportunity to check out the house in a casual setting and see what you might be working with. This is also the perfect time to make sure that the home meets your needs. Here are a few things you might want to consider when making your way through an open house.

The Neighborhood

The first and probably most important thing to consider besides the house itself is the neighborhood. Make sure when you are locating the open house you take note of the condition the neighborhood is in. Obviously, you want to live in a safe and well-kept area. So, before you make any big decisions, take a moment to get a feel for where you might be living.

The Roof’s condition

Imagine finally moving into what you think is your dream home. Its 1am, you are lying in bed fast asleep and out of nowhere a drop of water hits you smack in the forehead. Turns out your dream home needs a dream roof to go with it. So, we suggest taking a gander at the roof or even asking about the roof’s status.

Lights and electrical switches

It’s kind of a given that you want the electrical switches to work correctly when you go to purchase a new home. Take a quick moment to check and see if they are full functioning!

Home scent

Last but certainly not least, it is important to take note of any lingering or noticeable scents. These smells can be an indicator of a bigger problem hiding within the walls of you “dream home”.
