It’s important to pay attention to all the information you have available to you because it will help you avoid unpleasant surprises down the road.
Be sure to ask questions about the property before buying. Some questions you might want to ask the current owner and/or yourself include:
- What kind of development plans are in the works for this neighborhood?
- Is there a chance that a highway will be built in the home’s backyard five years from now?
- Is this street likely to become a major street or a popular rush-hour shortcut?
- What are the zoning laws in this area?
