A functioning septic system is a must, not a nice to have item. Cracked septic tanks, failing drainfields, a system too small for the size of the home (this often happens when someone expands the number of bedrooms without expanding the drainfield to match), damaged pipes can all lead to expensive repairs. Replacing septic tanks can cost several thousand dollars, depending on the type of tank and size. Drainfields, however, are the most expensive part of the septic system and can cost $5000 - $20,000, depending on the size and where you live, to tear out an old system and replace it.
Radon mitigation, if unacceptable levels of radon are found in a home, can run $500 - $1000 or more. Why should you care about high levels of radon? Because radon gas is radioactive, exposure to high levels of radon gas can lead to health problems such as lung cancer. Children are more sensitive to radon gases.
Money spent on inspections before you buy a home can save you a lot of money and grief later, when you own the home and are now responsible for all repairs.
Shame on those 2 agents for telling you to skip the septic system inspection and radon levels testing. I suspect that they are not looking out for your best interests.... more
Good question! Unfortunately each buyer is so different in what they like and dislike. Hardwood has been known to be a big upgrade and some buyers will think of it as such. But I have had a lot of buyers not wanting hardwood due to pets especially dogs scratching it with their nails. Personally I like the look of hardwood, but having the whole house in hardwood may limit some buyers.... more

You can all the Assessor's office or go to the courthouse and they will give you a copy. If you are working with a Realtor they should provide you with those. Also, if you know someone in the neighborhood ask for a contact name and number on the HOA. They should be able to assist you as well.... more
If you are working with a licensed realtor, they can assist you by providing a home search meeting your criteria along with indicating if the property is eligible for a USDA loan. You can also enter the property address into the search bar on the USDA website and it will show you if the home is in a USDA eligible area. That is just the beginning as the home must also be in good condition in order to pass the apppraisal. There are requirements for buyers to be eligible for the loan also, including credit score and a minimum yearly income as well as a maximum yearly income for the family. Your best bet is to stay in close contact with your professional Realtor. I see that this question was posted in 2013 but thought others might appreciate a link to the USDA eligibility map.

USDA requires a 640 or higher credit score. You can sign up with my lender who can place you in a credit restore program that would get that number up for you, within, say, 6 mos to a year. Go through the process, and you will reap the rewards.... more
it's very difficult these days to get a home loan, there are so many stipulations that must be met. You could probably rent easily enough, however real estate agents don't often do rentals. Contact a local Property Management Group. And speak with a lender that can place you into a credit restore program, it sometimes takes about a year, but it's worth it in the end, to take that year and clear things up.... more
