Four Things to Ask Before Placing a Bid on a Home

Four Things to Ask Before Placing a Bid on a Home

So you’re not just moving into a new home, you’re moving into a new neighborhood. There are questions you should ask the realtor and the previous owners about the home and the neighborhood before placing your bid!

Are There Sex Offenders In The Neighborhood?

The last thing you want is to buy a house next to a registered offender two doors down. If there are any, be sure you know where they live and think carefully about where you’re buying a home.

How Do The Schools Rank Nearby?

Even if you don’t have small kids, how the schools rank means a lot. Because eventually you’ll sell your house, and the next buyers may have kids. If the schools suck, run. The quality of schools affects home values.

How Is The Noise Level In The Neighborhood?

You’re not being picky, especially if you work swing shift! The home you move into and the neighborhood should compliment your lifestyle, not disrupt it. 

Are There Any City Ordinances For The Property?

Did you know in some cities/ and towns that you cannot have a pool without a fence bordering your entire property? Or in some places you cannot have your dog outside without a leash? There are many many more stipulations to know. Make sure you know what they are before planning to move into the neighborhood.
