10 Questions To Ask At Every Listing

Are you asking enough questions when looking at houses?


Here are 10 questions you should be asking your realtor about every house that you look at.

House hunting is overwhelming, trust me I’ve been there myself…. But being an agent now I have a minimum list of questions I dive into for my buyers for each house we look at, regardless if they ask me to or not.

10 Questions To Ask At Every Listing

  1. What is the age of the roof?
  2. What is the Age of the Septic System?
  3. When was the Septic last pumped? Is there an inspection report?
  4. What is the age of the well? What type of well is it? Safe drinking test?
  5. Any special offer requests? (offer date, long irrevocable period or seller conditions?)
  6. What is the zoning?
  7. Are there any additional private realtor notes you should be aware of?
  8. What is the preferred deposit amount?
