As a Lehigh Valley Home Buyer, you may be excited about a Property that has been fully Renovated or is a Flip (purchased in bad condition and redone to sell).
A brand new kitchen with granite counter-tops looks great and is extremely appealing. Remodeled bathrooms, new carpeting and everything newly painted makes the home extremely appealing.
Areas that may not be fully looked at, when caught up in the moment of the "new" home, may be the basement or attic. Either one may incur a large expense and may have been ignored in order to make the home cosmetically appealing. "Wow, look at the kitchen"
When considering Buying one of these Lehigh Valley Homes I would pay special attention to:
Quality of work - it looks really good but was it done professionally with quality materials?
Basement - structural, water issues, termite damage, electrical system, heating system
Attic - roof, soffets, rain gutter system
Signs of mold?
Any idea about the condition of the home before the work was done? Is a history of the property available? Can you get any questions answered?
Some Lehigh Valley Renovated Homes are done very well and are a good purchase while others may have been done fast with making a quick dollar in mind. Buyer Beware!
