When house hunting, it can be fun to look through homes that you could potentially call your own. But keep in mind that you are not doing this just for fun. Try not be distracted by decorative tricks that might otherwise hide a structural anomaly.
My recommendation for prospective buyers is to use an Evaluation Checklist to keep track of the most important aspects of the homes you see.
Use the Evaluation Checklist (Link here: The-Checklist-for-Evaluating-a-Home-Feb-2018-2.pdf) when you become seriously interested in a house. It will support you from seeing the property from a less emotional position and make a better and more informed decision.
Do not use this list as a substitute for hiring a Building and Pest Inspector to check out the house thoroughly. Engaging your own building and pest inspector should be part of your own due diligence before committing to a sale.
