When you buy property, whether in a rural, suburban, or vacation area, be sure to check if you are buying everything that lies below and above the ground.  Typically, when you purchase a home, you do own whatever lies in and around the property. However, in some parts of the country, homeowners are realizing the land they paid for does not include the land beneath it. Another party, home builders or home sellers, may own the mineral rights. This means that, they may turn around and sell some energy company the right to extract gas or oil from your land without your consent, affecting your property value for years while another party collects the royalties. Here are a few precautionary steps to take before you purchase your property.

Why should I care about preventative maintenance you ask?

 

1.Preventative care is important because it can save you a lot of money in the future.
For example: a tube of caulk costs just a few dollars at your local hardware store but replacing an entire wall due to deteriorated or missing caulking around your bathtub or sink could mean

Purchasing a newly constructed home has the potential to be very complicated. There are many factors to take into consideration; regardless of what stage in construction, a homebuyer will need an experienced realtor to give their expert advice and relieve some of the stress that can accompany their big purchase.

A realtor can likely save the buyer thousands of dollars by catching little things the buyer may overlook. This could include having a first home inspection after the home is framed, but before the walls and flooring are finished. In doing this, the home inspector can get a good look at the structure, framing, plumbing, and electrical. A realtor can assist the buyer when negotiating special concessions or a lower asking price.

How many people are you paying to upkeep your home?
