“Go to showings when it’s rainy as ###k, then check out the basement. This will expose any water issues with the foundation even a moron like me could see. One house I was shown had a cable run into the basement from outside at the dirt level and never sealed – so there was a stream of water pouring over the circuit breaker box onto the basement floor. Passed on that house.”

“Speaking from personal experience – look out for a seller who likes to do DIY home improvements. Sure, those cabinets etc look OK but you are in for a lifetime of ###tty problems!”

“As a construction guy, please please PLEASE check the attic. People buy houses and never check the actual AC. If you go up there and smell a burnt smell, or see big silvery tubes that look crumpled, those are issues. I do HVAC. A burnt smell in the attic means both a compressor issue (caused by never changing the filter) and the silvery tubes are called flex, which acts as ductwork. If they look bent, don’t buy.”

“Night trains and flight paths.”

“Fresh paint, new carpet, but nothing else updated. It’s the realtor remodel special. Just there to make you feel good on your 15 min walk through. Look at the tiles, trim, foundation to see what you really need to know. And always drive the neighborhood at night if you do not know it.”

“Put a marble on the floor and see where/if it rolls.”
