Some buyers go around a house for half an hour and they make a decision as to whether or not they want to buy it. The main thing to remember here is that this house is quite possibly going to be your home for the rest of your life, and half an hour might not be long enough for you to get a good idea of the property and what it has to offer.
Of course, it is understandable that you may not have hours spare to go through everything. So, it helps to have a checklist that can be used to try and work your way through the most important aspects of it.
The first thing that you need to take note of is whether there is damp or not. Damp can give off a very moldy smell and you may also see plaster that is flaking away from the walls. Other signs include watermarked walls and even ceilings as well. This may sound very obvious but you’d be surprised at how many people overlook things like this. You will want to look around the skirting board, and if the house has been recently painted, make sure that you ask the owners about this before you make your decision.
