Becoming a homeowner for the first time can be a little overwhelming. There are many homes on the market throughout Bucks County, including Yardley, Downingtown, and Washington Crossing – that it’s tough to find the perfect one that fits your budget and needs. Here are some tips on what you should look for when you’re looking for your first home.
Drive around the neighborhood. Even though the home is beautiful, the neighborhood may not be what you’re looking for. Take a short drive up and down the streets and see what the areas surrounding your home are like.
Walk around the home and inspect the outside. Is it well taken care of? Are the gutters in good condition? Is the siding damaged? Look around to get an idea of how the current homeowners are taking care of the property.
Look at the walls and ceilings. You can always tell if the home has ever had water damage by looking for spots on the walls and ceilings.
Check the appliances and counters in the kitchen. Depending on the price of the home, knowing if you need to replace appliances or update the kitchen with new counters and cabinets can have a major affect on your budget.
