    Yes, it’s very important to find out whether the house you’re going to buy needs many repairs. I especially recommend paying attention to plumbing. I have heard and read many times that it’s not advised to buy houses with old plumbing. Plumbing repairs are not cheap. And old faulty plumbing can cause flooding and damage to property.

    “Does it need much work?” – a good question, indeed. I have often heard and read that it’s not advised to buy houses with old plumbing. Plumbing repairs are not cheap and need much effort. Moreover, some plumbing issues have severe consequences if not fixed promptly.

    As for the pitfalls, make sure the wiring is new or replaced. Especially if you’re going to buy an old house. A big problem from the 70s was the use of aluminum wiring. It expands and contracts as it heats and cools. Connections become loose, causing a huge danger of electrical fires.

    As for location, you should also consider such a thing as the crime rate. But even if the area you’re gonna live in is safe enough, you still need to remember about home security. In such places, people are more relaxed and less concerned about safety. Accordingly, this can make your house more “easy prey” for the criminal. Security cameras watching your door, front lawn, and backyard as well as burglar-proof doors and closed windows can increase the safety and security of your home.
