It is necessary to ask some crucial questions from the seller of your new home. No house is 100% perfect for you at the point of sale. You must, therefore, seek to learn whatever issues the house may have so that you can appropriately weigh your options before deciding to buy and be adequately prepared to handle them if you choose to buy it. While some sellers may volunteer that information, it is not incorrect to assume that most will not, hence the need to ask these questions:
Is the house or neighborhood flood-prone?
When was the house roofed and how does the material age?
How is sewage disposed of in the building?
How does the neighborhood look?
Seeking answers to each of these questions will help you to make informed decisions when buying a house.
