When looking for homes, there is something for everyone. Do you know what kind of property you’re searching for?. When our family looks for homes, we often look for “good bones”. What does this mean? It means a structurally sound. This includes the foundation of the structure. When you examine the home, are the updates that are needed structural or cosmetic. Structural needs could be seen as roofing, electrical wiring or plumbing and cosmetic needs could be thought of as undesirable flooring or paint color. Cosmetic repairs may be desired, but are not necessarily a top priority. By sorting information like this, we were able to narrow down our search and see the potential costs associated with each home we were considering.
