    Roof

    From the ground the roof might look alright, but always have someone who knows roofs go on the house and take a look from atop. Make sure the inspection is done in the daylight and even better down during a rain storm with some wind too. Look on the inside of the home you are thinking about buying. Especially look at the ceilings to see water marks that might have been covered with paint. Using a flash light will put a different view for your eyes to see that you might not see with a lamp or central lighting. A roof id an important part of the house.

    Front and Back Yards

    If you have ever looked at a yard and thought of the shade the nice big trees are providing for the house you are buying, consider this now. The roots of that wonderful tree might cause problems in the drainage of the septic system. Those same roots could cause problems in the incoming water supply too. Shade trees are not always a great thing to have in the front or back yards. Chances are that if a strong wind storm is frequently attacking that area, you will not want a big tree looming over your home you are thinking of buying.

    Electrical Box

    Distribution boxes are often called electrical boxes. This is the source of electricity to the house, garage and out buildings. Make sure the wattage covers the use of all the major appliances and everything you will use electricity for when you buy the house. Part of the home owner's inspection is to make sure the distribution box is safe, inspected for use of all electrical appliances and will be for ever.If you have any doubt call the extension office in the area and they will tell you the person to contact to tell you all is good with your new purchase.

    Drainage

    Water drainage in all areas is important to review before buying a home anywhere. In areas where it rains little, the run off will be severe because the land will be too hard to absorb the torrential storms that could hit the land around your home and create mega problems. Floods have been reported in areas that do not get much rain , but when it rains , it pours a lot at one time causing floods. Drain gutters and leaders are important to a home owner. check out the down spouts and take notice if some are missing or not working well. Make your offer with those costs in mind.

    Neighborhood Qwerks

    Qwerks in the neighborhood can be so different for everyone. My favorite pet peeve is a basketball hoop next door or in really close to the home I am thinking about buying. the constant bouncing and hitting the back board of the hoop drives me up a wall. Parks are close enough for children that they should not have to torment neighbors with a noise of the basketball game in the neighborhood. Find out what your annoyance is before you buy the house. If you can tolerate everything but one, don't buy the house thinking things will change when they might not.
