There are a lot of things that need your attention when you are house hunting. With a real estate agent by your side, you can be assured that not will you will be saved from buying a fixer upper but you will also be able to buy a home for sale in West Bloomfield, Michigan that matches your wants and needs.

We know that the whole home buying process is exciting and overwhelming at the same time, and that is the reason why most of you end up doing silly mistakes. So, in order to save money after you have made such a huge investment, avoid these following myths at all costs:

1. You Only Need a Roof Vent for Houses Located in Areas that Are Warm

The beauty of a ventilation system is that it sucks out hot hair and blows it through the roof. This is why most house located in areas where the weather is always cold, has vents.

Now, are you confused as to why this is a myth?

Well, imagine your roof covered with snow and your house doesn’t have a vent. The sun will melt the snow and at night, the snow will freeze again. The hot air in the house will have no way out and that will speed up the melting cycle. Slowly, water will seep into the roof and then into the walls.

2. Buy Home Warrant As Soon As it Runs Out

You have a house warming party and one of the guests bought a $500 bottle of wine. The wine was delicious and for two days, you enjoyed it with dinner. When it was finished, you went back to your $24 bottle of wine. This is how you should see a house warranty. In most cases, the seller is the one who gives the house warranty as an incentive. Rather than renewing, put the money in a savings account. Warranty companies take too much to make repairs and even then, there’s heavy red tape involved.

3. You Don’t Need to Mow the Lawn Every Month

When the time comes to put up your home for sale in West Bloomfield, Michigan, you will find that few buyers are interested in your property. Reason? Lack of curb appeal. The one thing that you need to maintain properly is the garden. If left unattended, weeds will start to grow and you will see flowers dying. When that trellis will reach up to your window, insects will make their way into the house.

4. Don’t Worry about the Main Water Line’s Leak. The Water Company Will Fix It

You need to worry and now because the main water line is your problem. It’s the public water lines that the water company is responsible for. So, call the plumber immediately and make sure to get the drainage pipes checked. Often, tree roots are the culprit behind the leak.

These are things that should be check before buying the home for sale in West Bloomfield, Michigan, during the home inspection. Your real estate agent will make sure that you are aware of all the home repairs, so that your money is not wasted.
