Why It's Smart to View a Home During the Rain

Why It's Smart to View a Home During the Rain

Some people walk in the rain, others just get wet.

Roger Miller

    Today's weather has been a good representation of our weather over the last week ... 
This week's weather has been:

     Cloudy.  It's included a storm watch and a flooding alert.  We've had downpours.  Winds.

     As you can imagine, all this recent wet weather has made the viewing of homes a bit challenging for Chicagoland Buyers and their agents.  

     But there IS a silver lining to all the wet weather too ...

     Buyers viewing homes get to see properties they're considering for purchase during what's possibly one of the most challenging times for a home or property.  During rain!  

     Buyers get to assess just how well a potential property handles that rain.  Where that rain goes.  How well the land soaks it up.  If the gutters handle the rain properly.  The efficiency and direction of the rain runoff on the property.  

     But given the potential monetary costs associated with water damage and flooding, this weather is currently offering Chicagoland Buyers a very valuable opportunity.  

     Although Home Inspectors will raise the issue of water damage upon their inspection, a Buyer educated about the signs of water damage protects themselves best.  

     So what are some of the signs of water damage?? 

     If a Buyer:  Click HERE  for info regarding the signs of water damage.  Be on the lookout for them during your home viewings.

     Take what's seemingly a disadvantage and turn it into an advantage for yourself.  Don't "just get wet" on your way to the front door of a home you're considering for purchase.  

     Seize the opportunity to really check properties out closely (inside and out) for drips, sitting water, cracks, run-off, and more.  You'll save yourself time, money, and heartache down the road ...
