Halifax Real Estate Information
Viewing an Open House

In Halifax it is easy to take a walk on the weekend and view the current open homes. However, remaining objective can be a difficult task when viewing an open house. It is easy to fall in love with a home's appearance, blind to problems that may make it unsuitable. Your realtor like Jeremy Croft can help you to spot the deficiencies in the home.

While aesthetics can be an important consideration, it is necessary to look beyond window-dressing. A qualified home inspector should be hired before purchasing a home, but there are areas that consumers can examine on their own. This will shorten your list of potential homes and reduce the likelihood that a home inspector will reject it as unsafe or unsuitable. (This information is as shown for inspecting your new home.)

Here are some considerations and common problem areas to look for when touring an open house:
General upkeep
Water leaks
Does it work?
Floors
Doors and windows
Poor drainage
Grout and caulking
Structural
Miscellaneous concerns
