What do you look for at an Open House? Wear and tear

Claire BREG professional imageWe’ve asked our home buyer agents what they look for at an open house. Today’s response comes from Claire Bastien –

“When viewing a home, I look for signs to see if the seller either maintained or neglected items on the exterior when approaching the home. I review the roof, shingles, gutters and downspouts, drainage, sidewalks, steps and foundation, siding and I look for areas where there might be a potential for water to be draining toward the home, and for any potential structural issues. Inside the home I look beyond the staging and cosmetics to see if the seller has cared for the home, or, if it is showing signs of wear and tear. I also look for foundation issues, level or slanting floors, and things that might indicate a potential issue that might cost my buyer money down the road if not fixed by the seller.”
