HONOLULU - June 6, 2017 - PRLog -- For any home buyer, the moving in phase presents an exciting moment but it can be exasperating at times. This could be for the reason that even though a home buyer is excited by the new place, they do not know it that well. This means that in a few days time, they will be floundering cluelessly with a number of things in the new house. There are so many surprises that home buyers can avoid if only they ask the right questions to home sellers before they move in. There is nothing better than finding out about a house from the horse's mouth (someone who knows the house well). A number of sellers opt to conceal the truth fearing that it may stop the sale. The right timing always works well in that such questions ought to be asked at the very end of the buying process like the closing and walk-through.

1. Does the House Have any Special Quirks?

Thorough home inspectors point out all the oddities that devalue the home and are considered unsafe. However, it is only a person who has lived in a particular home that will have the full information on the unique things present in a house. This question ought to be asked when taking part in the last walk-through by asking them for anything that should be anticipated.

2. Have You Dealt With Any Problems/Issues in the House Before?

Home sellers are required to reveal the most existing issues or problems in the house. They should reveal whether such issues have been fixed so far or not. A seller's statement ought to reveal whether repair or replacement has been carried out. However, this varies with the state as the sellers are not always required to reveal everything.

3. Where are the Circuit Box, Sump Pump and Water Shut-off Valve Located?

It is possible that home inspectors can help new home owners locate all these important controls. However, not all of them do so and it becomes extremely important to ask these questions. A home buyer should ask the previous owner where and how the switches, pumps and valves work. This is especially necessary if the house is a bit older.

4. Tell Me More About the Neighborhood

Asking more about the kind of neighborhood where the home is located help in creating a rapport between the buyer and seller. This question should be asked close to the completion of the deal and asked lightly. If the home buyer is not familiar with the neighborhood, it would be wise to consider asking for recommendations in terms of grocery stores, favorite restaurants and other important areas.

5. Do You Want to Leave Anything behind?

Although this question does not directly help a home buyer get to learn more about the house, it might bring about some great bonuses. Home buyers could be eyeing a few decorating items present in the house and it is worth trying to see if the home seller could be willing to leave anything behind. There are home owners who might leave some things behind due to the burden of carrying them as they move or due to their large size. According to Bill Golden, a realtor working with Re/Max Metro Atlanta, things like appliances are often left behind and are listed on the original contract. However, as the sale closing nears, there are some home sellers who opt to leave other things too.
