Expect the unexpected in Real Estate

When buying, selling, owning, or renting Real Estate in Lancaster County Pa or anywhere for that matter. Expect the unexpected in Real Estate, If you’re not, you’re setting yourself up for disaster.  When buying homes that are older, examine and/or test the utilities going from the street to the home. Without digging up everything there is really no way to know what’s really going on under there. If you feel there maybe an issue because the home has, a wet basement, really green patches in the yard, water leaching through a wall or maybe an odor or dampness. Right then and there you should consider getting an specific inspection on the problem area. Although there really is no way to fully know if there’s an issue, you can have certain tests performed to take precaution against potential future expenses.

Sometimes even the best test cannot protect you against the unknown, so sometimes you just have to take the plunge. Just know this, if you have a question or a concern you can always call me if you don’t already have a realtor in Lancaster Pa. Take a look at the pictures below. A property of mine in Lancaster City I recently had to have the sewer line dug up out front due to a leak, I just thought I’d share.
