Watch Out for Hidden Landmines When Buying a House

When you’re purchasing a home, be sure to look out for “hidden landmines”. What do I mean by this? Find out in this video, “Watch Out for Hidden Landmines When Buying a House”:

Hidden Landmines in Real Estate

So what are hidden landmines? Hidden landmines include anything that you may not first be aware of about the location of the home. Here are four examples of hidden landmines you might come across when buying a home (in questions to ask):

  1. Are there any encroachments on the property?
  2. Are there any easements on the property? 
  3. Is the property in a flood zone?
  4. Are there any landfills nearby, or is the property on top of a landfill?

These four examples are just a few hidden landmines. Make sure you’re on the lookout and ask the right questions when you’re buying a home. Have a real estate agent who knows the area and who you can trust to find out if there are any hidden landmines you might not know about after first looking at the home.
