What you should know before buying a flip.

by The Peggy Graves Team

Today's buyers love a newly remodeled home. Because inventory is low, homes that have been updated and are priced at fair market value are flying off of the shelves. But just because the home looks new, doesn't mean that you should not proceed with thorough home inspections before making a purchase. Find out who did the remodel and if they are reputable. If the work was a DIY job, completed by the homeowner, take extra precautions with electrical, plumbing and structural inspections. Find out if the home has been treated for mold of termites. If so, ask or proof that the remediation work was done by a licensed professional.

A flipper's main goal is to turn the property as soon as possible, therefore many changes will be cosmetic. Sometimes the more expensive, less visible problems, such as plumbing and sub flooring will not get fixed. Don't be afraid to ask the homeowner for more information and even receipts showing what was done, what quality of products were purchased and who did the work. Bring in your own additional specialists to look at plumbing, heating/air, electrical and roofing. If you notice cracks, call structural engineer.
