Location: Questions Every Home Buyer Should Ask

Consider Destinations

Where will family members go most often from this new location? How easy is it to reach those places from the house? How accessible are schools, churches, grocery stores, medical care, public transportation, shopping malls and emergency services?

Be sure rooms have a view

What is the view from the house and yard? Is the yard right for your anticipated activities? What uses are possible for nearby undeveloped land? Is a new road or commercial development planned?

Location: Questions Every Home Buyer Should AskCheck around the clock

Is rush hour traffic a problem? What will be the impact of special events such as local high-school games or church picnics? Crash test the driveway. How easy is it to get into and out of the driveway?

Be service conscious

What utilities serve the property? Are the rates competitive? Do you want an all-electric house, or do you want gas or oil heat? Where will you get your mail? Are there any easements?

Dig below the surface

Is the soil stable? Is part of the property on a flood plain? If so, what is the history of floods on the property and what would flood insurance cost?

Visit the neighbors

How will you fit in with the neighbors? Do people seem to be friendly? Are houses well-maintained?

Read the fine print

If the community has special by-laws or architectural controls over changes to a house, what are the pros and cons?
