The key to success during the home buying process is knowing what to look for when buying an Orange County home.
Is The Home Ready For Improvement?

For example: the roof needs to be replaced, driveway needs to be repaved or house needs to be repainted. If the house needs some work, the buyer will be able to take that into consideration and submit a lower bid, knowing that they will need to do some work to get the house fixed to their specifications once they move in.
Look For Damage
You may have found a beautiful home, and you’re ready to call your Orange County Realtor to submit an offer, but have you fully inspected it, inside and out?
