I never knew how hard it was to buy a new house.
My partner and I spent weeks visiting open houses in the area every one of us liked separate from any positive results.
There was always an issue with the loft that was revealed while in the inspection. My partner is a trained inspector and always managed to see what homeowners were hiding from potential purchasers. So every one of us chose to wait a little longer to get the best house. A year later, the search was over when every one of us got a new build. It was an excellent loft that was up to code, in the right location, and within our budget! Not to mention, the owner had installed a new Heating and A/C equipment and gas furnace in the house. This would mean every one of us did not have to incur extra costs to get correct air conditioner in the house. My partner called a buddy of hers to the loft who was a professional A/C expert. She wanted him to evaluate the Heating and A/C equipment and gas furnace first. This would tell us if the units were in the best conditions before signing on the dotted line. In a previous house, the owner had lied that the new units were energy efficient when they were not. Every one of us were not about to be fooled twice. The A/C inspector came over that afternoon and began evaluating the Heating and A/C equipment and gas furnace, and both were in excellent shape and would serve us well while in the severe Summer and Wintertide weeks. His only suggestion was to add more duct sealing in our new loft before Wintertide to make it much more comfortable. That was an extra cost every one of us were willing to pay since the homeowner had been truthful.
