There are a lot of things to consider when touring homes to purchase. But some things can kind of float under the radar because most home buyers haven’t spent much time living in older homes.
One example is outlets, or lack thereof.
This is especially true if the house is filled with furniture.
We were recently looking at a home in the northern part of our market area in Livingston County. The home was almost one hundred years old.
The buyers were looking at rooms, layout, flooring, and bathrooms. But they could have missed entirely the extreme lack of outlets in the bedrooms.
To make this more interesting the buyer’s father was with us and he is an electronics technician who has rewired most of his own home.
Many issues like these are fixable, but we want you to know the downsides of the homes we look at together, so you’ll be more confident in your home-buying decisions.
