The Adventures of Moving to Idaho Part 1

 

Hey you guys!, it’s been a while since I have posted on this blog, bet you thought I was gone, but not so. There has been a lot going on since my last post, and I want to take a few minutes to share. If you have not heard me on Social Media platforms, we are moving to Idaho from Oregon. Needless to say, it has been a ride. We have learned a lot about moving and buying a house in another state that I would like to share with you so you will know how to handle each situation as it makes its appearance.

First, do not put in an offer on a house if you are under a contingency. Sellers do not work with you well unless they are sure you are going to sell, and they are never sure and neither are you. Chances are it will not go through and you will be left disappointed, make sure you are free and clear to make your offer with no strings, it will save you heartache in the long run.

Second, make sure you go to visit your property, do not make an offer based on the pictures you see online, the pictures online are not what you actually see when you go and physically visit your property in person. Real Estate photos are posted to make the property appear in better condition than they really are most of the time, and they only take partial pictures of each room and it is not always clear what you are seeing.

Third, make sure you do an inspection on your property before purchase, and go over the inspection report completely. This is the time that you can get the seller to fix and repair everything that you don’t want to do when you move in. We had an offer on a house and if it wasn’t for the inspection we would have had an expensive mess on our hands, so please examine your inspection report diligently, it could save your pocketbook.
