What To Look For In An Open House In Vancouver

When it comes to buying a house, homebuyers have a vast list of deal-breakers, a must-have list once it’s a significant investment and a lifetime accomplishment. Along the hunting house process, seeing so many and different options, homebuyers can lose focus and might end up making a deal that they can regret later.

 To successfully accomplish your house hunter, you need someone you can trust to help source your ideal and a dream home in Vancouver, West Vancouver, or North Vancouver. Amir Miri, Vancouver’s leading realtor in the luxury market, has many years of experience helping clients to keep focused and to get their dream homes. 

During the open houses’ sessions, don’t let the home decoration either other distractions to make you lose your focus on buying your dream home. With your realtor, make sure you can look and analyze whether the house is a good fit for you and your family or not.  

Following, you can find a checklist of points that you might miss at first glance and should observe before closing a deal.  

Windows


Observe and check if the windows are facing the right direction to allow the sunlight in, and whether they open to a good view, instead of facing directly another neighbor’s window, or even worst, having a building close by invading your privacy.  

Another point of attention is to check if they are sealing the wind. Any position that you feel the breeze coming should be fixed; otherwise you might face challenges during the winter or even with the raining. 

Plumbing


Problems with plumbing are not easy to see at first glance, but some quick observations can help you to have a good idea of the conditions in the house. 

Check for possible signs of water damage due to leaky plumbing under the skin cabinets in the kitchen and the bathrooms.  

Also, remember about the waterspouts. All the gutters runoff should be pointed away from the house, thus remember to go outside the house and check all of them to avoid any headache in the future. 

Electrical Outlets


Make sure to check all the electrical outlets in all the rooms in the house. There is nothing more frustrating and dangerous than having only a few electrical outlets and limiting your space to connect the appliances and other electronic devices.  

In case there are not enough outlets in the house, you can plan for a renovation to include more, which also can be part of your negotiation.  During your house hunting, there is no need to lose your focus. 

All you need it's to find a respected and trusted realtor to help you to make the best deal possible.
