Not every showing will turn out to be “the one.”
Want to make sure you don’t make an offer on a dud property? Watch for these red flags:
- Signs of poor care/maintenance. If there are obvious signs of poor maintenance, you can bet there are deeper, less visible ones, too.
- Strange smells or odors. These can indicate pets, rotting food, mold or mildew (some of which can be dangerous!)
- Bad neighbors. Trash on the yard next door? Cars all over the street? These all point to potentially bad neighbors.
Make sure to bring an agent along with you. They’ll make sure no red flags go unnoticed.
