Old houses tend to need a little sprucing up. If you fall in love with one, a new coat of paint and probably some new windows may be needed. You must also check the foundation for signs of cracks or shifting. A thorough home inspection service to tell you for sure if the foundation is solid is recommended.
Next the wiring, if the home's wiring is outdated make sure you consider the cost of updating it. You are in luck if the previous owner already rewired the entire house. Make sure you closely inspect the water pipes too. Mineral buildup, corrosion, or leaks in the pipes won't be obvious until you're trying to take a shower and realize that very little water is coming out.
Make sure you also have the roof, attic and the heating system of the house checked by professionals. check the roof and the attic carefully for leaks. There are indeed a lot of things to carefully think about when buying an old house but don't let that scare you off from considering to buy one. Just so you know, old houses are usually exceptionally well made, built with good, high-quality materials and strong craftsmanship.Posted by Colleen D. Lane on
