One of the final hurdles to buying a house is making sure your future home is structurally sound. To the untrained eye, the property you've made an offer on may appear to be "close enough to perfect."

However, your excitement over that gourmet kitchen, finished basement, and manicured lawn may be causing you to view your future home with rose-colored glasses!

Fortunately, you can (and should) hire an experienced, licensed professional to thoroughly inspect the property and point out flaws and potential problems that might need to be addressed by the seller -- either in the form of price concessions or repairs. If the seller is unwilling to be flexible in those areas, then you may have the option of withdrawing your offer. Hopefully, it won't come down to that -- especially if you love the house -- but that situation could arise and derail your plans for buying a particular property.

Many real estate purchases do involve a few bumps and detours along the way, but they frequently can be resolved by your real estate agent and/or attorney.

The starting point for identifying structural issues with a house is to have the property inspected by a reputable home inspector. Here are a few of the key areas they'll evaluate and include in their report:

  • Foundation and basement: Cracks, leaks, and signs of instability can often be identified through a visual inspection of the underlying structure of a home. Some issues are relatively minor, while others can be quite costly.
  • Roof and attic: Although most new roofs typically last for 20 to 30 years, time has a way of slipping by when you least expect it! Depending on weather conditions, climate, and falling tree branches, roofs of any age can be subjected to a lot of wear and tear. Since roofs play such a vital role in protecting your home and family from the many forces of nature, it's crucial that your roof be intact, in sound condition, and fully functional. An inspection of the home's attic and/or crawlspace will also reveal actual or potential problems with leaks, mold, roof damage, or infestations.
  • HVAC, electrical, and plumbing: There are a lot of systems that provide homeowners with comfort, convenience, and the ability to meet day-to-day needs. Whether you're talking about major kitchen appliances, hot water heaters, or climate control systems, there are dozens of things an inspector needs to check and keep you apprised of.
  • Exterior checkpoints: Property inspectors will also assess the condition of the outside of the house, as well as drainage efficiency and any visible structural damage or signs of deterioration.
Although all property inspectors should adhere to industry standards and best practices, some are more thorough and efficient than others. It's essential for you to understand the scope of their services, including whether they offer lead paint testing, termite inspection, radon detection, and asbestos testing.

When it comes to home inspections, your real estate agent can not only provide you with professional referrals, but they can also accompany you on the actual property inspection. That will help make sure important questions, issues, and recommendations don't slip through the cracks!

If you’re trying to sell your home, you probably have thought of everything from staging to pricing to when the best time for your realtor to hold an open house is. What you may not have considered is the exterior color of your home. Yes, both colors inside and outside of your home can attract or detract buyers from your home. 


Although it could seem silly for you to invest in a brand new exterior paint color right before you sell your home, it could result in some big returns when you head to sell the property. Below, you’ll find some of the best exterior paint colors for your home and why these colors are great in attracting buyers. 


Colors That Blend In With The Natural Surroundings


This principle for color is fantastic. You have a wide range of choices in everything from a putty to a stone to shades of green. These colors all can blend in with the natural environment around your home. Depending upon what surrounds your home, the colors that you choose can vary widely. Do you have a home out in the woods? Choose a sharp shade of green or a bold shade of brown or tan. Everything from the type of foundation you have to the outer accents of the home should be considered when choosing these exterior paint colors.


Think Of The Type And Color Of The Trim You Want


If you really want white trim along the edges of your home, you should pair up that color with the base color of your home. For example, if you’re looking for a white trim, choose colors that will look good with that tone like shades of blue and gray. Remember that buyers will be attracted to complimenting colors.    


Neutral Is Best


When you really can’t make up your mind when choosing an exterior paint color, always go with something neutral. This is the best way to play it safe when you’re putting your home up for sale and making changes. Buyers can always envision themselves living in a neutral colored home. It may be a bit more difficult to match the personalities of buyers with eccentric color choices. 


Examples Of Attractive Exterior Paint Colors


  • Taupe
  • Tan
  • Putty
  • Gray
  • Yellow
  • White
  • Light Blue
  • Deep Blue
  • Forest Green
  • Bright Red


While no magic combination of colors is guaranteed to make your home sell fast, you’ll have a better chance of selling if the home appears pleasant from the outside in. Putting a fresh coat of paint on your home can really bring about more curb appeal, attracting buyers, possibly giving the property a bit more value. Don’t hesitate to invest a little money in your home before you sell to get the maximum return on the sale.
