You've found the perfect home. It's a beach-front property sitting on two acres of land with the best views. But, if you're like most buyers, you didn't ask the right questions during the purchase process. For example, why's that huge blot of paint thicker on the siding of one wall than it is on others? Or, why is the home sloping so much at the back, while it's level at the front? These, and other things buyers forget to look for when buying, end up costing more than they bargained for.
Concealing Paint Coverage
You'll obviously look at the floor and ceiling for watermarks to spot signs of water damage. But, if you notice fresh paint right before an open house, on several walls or areas of the home, sellers might be trying to hide something. This includes mold damage, which is an even bigger issue you don't want to deal with. Check pipes, exposed areas, and look for fresh paint. If it's staring you in the face, don't hesitate to ask about it.
