What’s my total budget? You should consider not only the sales price, but also the property taxes, homeowners insurance, maintenance costs, and any renovations you want to do. You should also get preapproved for a mortgage to show the seller you are a serious buyer.

Is the home in a flood zone or prone to other natural disasters? You may need to get additional insurance coverage if the home is located in an area that is at risk of flooding, earthquakes, wildfires, or other hazards. You can check the FEMA website for flood maps and other resources.

Why is the seller leaving? This question can help you gauge the seller’s motivation and urgency to sell. It can also reveal any potential issues with the home or neighborhood the seller is trying to avoid1.

What’s included in the sale? It would help if you clarified what items or fixtures are staying with the home and what is not—for example, appliances, window treatments, light fixtures, furniture, etc. It would help if you also asked about any warranties or manuals for these items.

Were there any additions or major renovations? You should find out if the home has been modified or updated in any way, and if so, when and by whom. You should also ask for permits and receipts for these projects to ensure they were done legally and properly.

How old is the roof? The roof is one of the most important parts of a home, as it protects it from weather and water damage. You should ask how old the roof is, what material it is made of, and if there are any signs of leaks or repairs.

How old are the appliances and major systems? You should ask how old and efficient are the appliances and systems in the home, such as the furnace, water heater, air conditioner, dishwasher, etc. You should also ask if they have been serviced regularly and if they have any warranties or guarantees.

How long has the house been on the market? This question can help you determine how popular or desirable the home is, and how much room you have for negotiation. If the house has been on the market for a long time, it may indicate that there is something wrong with it or that it is overpriced.

How much have homes sold for in the neighborhood? It would help if you did some research on the recent sales prices of comparable homes in the area to get an idea of the market value of the home you are interested in. This can help you avoid overpaying or underbidding for a home.

Are there any health or safety hazards? You should ask if there are any issues with the home that could affect your health or safety, such as mold, asbestos, lead paint, radon gas, termites, etc. You should also get a professional home inspection to uncover any hidden problems before you buy
