The decision to buy a home should only be made after conducting a thorough review of the property and a home buyer can never do this without complete info on the property history. The kind of info available usually varies depending on who is selling the home.
If, for instance, someone is buying the home from a person who has lived there in the past, they'll get the opportunity to interview the seller and probably get as much info as they can. Today however, Americans are likely to buy their home from a bank which is hardly willing to discuss the history of the home with buyers.
Since home buyers might be getting a home in a neighborhood they are not familiar with, they’ll need to know whether there are schools nearby (if they have school going kids) and how far the shopping district is. Important details about the house that buyers need to find out include the full list of past owners, the construction date of the house and its repair history.
Knowing the contractors who have been involved in the repair would also help – home buyers might need to contact them when they need repairs carried out. Moreover, knowing the extent of repairs carried out in the past will shed light on the true value of the property. Still on repairs, home buyers need to find out what necessitated those repairs.
Were repairs carried out after a fire incident or has the house been flood damaged in the past?
The kind of info needed to obtain on a new house is massive and buyers can only get the details buyers need by obtaining a report from a professional. By using the property history reports available from PropertyHistory.us.org, home buyers can be sure that they will get all the info they need to help them make an informed purchase decision.
