Homes of All Ages Need an Inspection


The age of a home is an important factor in determining a property's desirability, condition and, ultimately, its marketability. Not every home ages in the same way or at the same pace. Use, weather, location and wear and tear all make a difference. In general, though, the following rules of thumb apply:

A New Home Ranch House
The buyer can - and should - expect a finished product that is virtually problem-free. It may need minor repairs to correct poorly wired circuits, cracked roof shingles, binding doors, dirty HVAC filter vents, missing hardware, scratches in hardwood finishes and chipped paint.

Tips & Tricks

Stinky Spots
Put a couple of dryer sheets or scented soap bars in the bottom of trash cans and under car seats.

Loose Table Leg
Having bumped into that side table one too many times makes for a wobbly situation. Fix this problem easily with a wrench. Turn the table upside down, then tighten the bolts in each corner.

Wipe rubber weathers stripping with a thin film of household oil from time to time. This will keep it flexible longer and it keeps the weatherstripping from sticking to the door or window on hot days.
