Watch Out for These Warning Signs When Buying A New Home!

by The Domis Team

Ready to Buy your dream Whittier Area home? Although you might have found a home that fits all of your needs on the surface, it is important to be a smart consumer and really inspect the bones of the home. A home inspector will help protect you by uncovering some underlying structural issues, but it is always helpful to know what to look out for yourself in order to make sure that the home is truly all that it seems. Look for these 7 warning signs that there could be issues with the home.

 

 

1. Bad Electrical - Electrical issues are important to look out for due to the fire hazard they pose. Be sure to check all outlets by touch and sight. Also, look for any exposed wires and flickering lights.

2. Bad Plumbing - Although the initial warning signs might not seem like a big deal, any potential water damage they could cause could wreak havoc on your new home. Check for leaks, drainage issues, low water pressure, and water stains.

3. Mold - Going hand in hand with the previous issue, you need to be on the look out for mold. Mold in the house poses a health risk to you and your family. Use your eyes and nose. Check for peeling paint, visible mold, rotted wood, and a musty smell.

4. Bad Repairs - If the home has clearly had some repairs or renovations done, try to examine the workmanship. If the materials seem cheap, tasks are incomplete, or anything seems done in an amateur fashion, it could be indicative that the repairs/renovations were not handled with the greatest care and will need to be redone on your dime.

5. Pests - No one wants pests to share their home with them. Be on the look out for damaged wood that could indicate termites or carpenter ants in the structure. Check for areas where mice and other rodents could easily enter the house.

6. Damaged Roof - While you can't climb up on the roof to make sure you won't be surprised by any future leaks, you can check for signs that the roof is damaged. Look to see how wear and tear has been dealt with. You want to see if there are any damaged and missing shingles.

7. Foundation Issues - The foundation keeps your home standing. Any potential foundation issues can be an incredibly expensive project to fix. Look inside the home for crooked floors and doors that have large gaps around them. Go outside of the home and check for trees close to the home that could have large roots as well as any cracks in the walls, driveway, and pathways.

 

 

Looking out for these warning signs can help you insure that the home your have fallen in love with is a smart purchase. The Domis Team is here to help you find and inspect the home you want to buy this fall. Give our team a call today or visit our website at http://www.whittierhomes.com/.

5 Steps to Lighten and Brighten Your Home!

by The Domis Team

Keep your home looking fresh, airy, and bright all year round. As we head towards the end of the year, the days will keep getting shorter. Lighten up your living space to combat those seasonal blues AND help make your home appear even larger! Feel like you are living inside a cloud by following these 5 steps to a lighter living space!

 

1. Remove clutter. Cleared off surfaces help create smooth, crisp lines and lighten up a space. Minimize the amount of things that you have on counters and tables. Evaluate your furniture and get rid of pieces that you do not use to open up the space.

 

2. Paint the walls white. Add fresh coats of white paint to your walls and ceilings to freshen up the space. White walls will make the room look crisp and larger!

 

3. Add grays and blues. In order to avoid your home looking too stark with those white walls, add decor in shades of grays and blues. Choose soft, light shades that are subtle but noticeable.

 

4. Lighter linens. Let the southern California sun in during the day by adding airy, breezy curtains. Add plush white throws and blankets to snuggle up in.

 

5. Mirrors. The reflection in mirrors help to open up a space. Think beyond wall mirrors (though add one or two of these two!) and add mirrored decor and furniture or mirrored back splashes.
