Why shopping in the rain can benefit you!

Posted: April 25, 2019 by John Weaver

Tired of all of the rain lately? There are a few benefits to house hunting the rain that you may not have thought of. If you don't mind getting a little wet then a stormy day is the perfect time to go to open houses or to home showings with your agent. Rain will show you any issues with the home that you would not see on a sunny day. Roof leaks will be apparent from looking in the attic and from wet spots on the ceiling. These could also be mold issues as well. Either way, you will easily be able to identify these and talk to your inspector about them. Another issue that is easily visible in the rain is drainage issues. If water is pooling near the home it could be a sign of foundation issues. It is important to make sure the foundation is checked if you do notice anything suspicious. Next, make sure and check the gutters and downspouts on the house to make sure they are working properly to move water away from the house. If they are overflowing then they will need to be repaired before closing to ensure they are working correctly. Make sure the gutters and downspouts are free from debris. When you work with our team we will make sure to have a thorough inspection of the home with a licensed professional to make sure there are no surprises after closing. Our rain boots and umbrellas are waiting, so give us a call today to begin your home search. 469-305-2791
