Purchasing this summer & looking for move-in ready?

You can purchase an older home... or buy brand new! But if you don't want to be sinking hundreds of dollars into your new place, check these items off your list...

- Confirm a landscaped yard and well-maintained deck.
- Make sure flooring, cabinets and other interior finishes are in great shape.
- Negotiate the appliances and window treatments to be included in the purchase.
- Check that the kitchen layout is functional with good storage.
- Will your furniture work in the new home? Keep measurements and pictures handy.
- Stay away from old lead pipes, 60 amp electrical panels and single pane windows. 

When in doubt... A home inspection is a small investment that could save you from LARGE bills in the future!
