Do your best in looking at the property you intend to make your home. Go beyond the kitchen and baths and room sizes. Look in the basement, at the roof, walk the exterior, look at the electrical service, etc. By doing so, you'll be more than comfortable that you've really checked the property prior to making your offer. And when your offer is in place, then get the property inspected. If you do your due diligence you'll raise your confidence level. A home inspection, while not terribly expensive, does cost money and if you're not confident this is the home for you, why proceed? Contact me to discuss further.
