Looking for Beverly Hills Houses? Look up / Look down
When you’re searching for Beverly Hills Houses, you are naturally excited about the prospect. You’re looking for space that will be comfortable for you and your entire family.
You’re looking for enough space that will fit with your lifestyle.
If you love to cook, you’re looking at counter tops and cupboard space and appliances.
If you have kids and dogs or love to garden or entertain outdoors, you’re looking at the yard, the deck, and perhaps a fence. If you have “motorized toys” or cars that like to live indoors, you’re looking at the garage space.
You’re also looking for a place that will “feel like home.”
Those are all good things to see and think about, but don’t forget to look up and look down.

There’s no point in getting excited about Beverly Hills Houses and paying for an inspection if your inspector is going to make you change your mind by telling you about things you would have seen if you’d been looking.
So look at the roof. Is it straight, or does it sag? Look at the roofing. Is it in good condition, or is it nearing the end of its life? Look at the facia boards – are they straight and solid, or broken and rotted?
Now look down – at the foundation and the sill plate. Small cracks don’t mean much, but large cracks in the wall could mean “large trouble.” Earth touching wood of your house can also mean trouble, as can rot in the sill plate.
If the house has a basement, look at the floor. Do you see signs of dampness? How about the walls – do you notice any signs of mold?
Issues like these can be fixed, but they can be very expensive. Some sellers of Beverly Hills Houses know about the problems and have priced their houses accordingly, but some have not. They’re hoping no one will notice.
When you work with me as your buyer’s agent, I’ll help you be on the lookout. Should you decide to pursue such a house, I’ll recommend a contractor to give you an estimate on the cost of repairs before you commit to a purchase price.
Look all around – but don’t forget to look up and look down!
