Buying A Home In Slidell, Louisiana

Slidell is one of our team’s more popular locations for home sales. It is a beautiful location with both city style living conditions and even river front areas near the rural parts outside the downtown area. There are plenty of options for home buyers looking in the area. Here are some hints for our Slidell area customers who are searching for a new home.

​​We all know that buying a new home can be a stressful time in anyone’s life and there are so many things to consider. YourHOMEteam has compiled a list of things to keep in mind before you purchase a home.

Let’s say you finally decide on the Slidell area and you are going view a few homes. When you view each home, make a list of pros and cons for each home you visit.  Once you have narrowed it down to one top choice, we recommend a home inspection.  By using a qualified home inspector, you can find out everything you need to know about the home. The top notch home inspectors will inspect every inch of the home including all appliances and fixtures to make sure they are operating properly. Home inspections are a pretty common practice these days and home owners are not involved while the inspector is conducting the inspection. The purchase of a home warranty would cover anything that shows up after the sale and move in is complete. When you are purchasing older homes, this becomes even more important.

Another inspection we would highly recommend, especially if you are purchasing a home more than 20 years old, is a plumbing inspection. Pipes that are that old could have build up in them that is causing the drains to be slow or even leaking. Plumbers these days can run cameras through the entire system to determine if there are any failures in the line. By doing all of this you could possibly save lots of money if there happens to be a problem with the home, and if there is nothing wrong with the home, you have the peace of mind knowing that the home you are purchasing is in excellent condition with no hidden faults. Roofs, plumbing, and appliances are just some of the things that you can have inspected on your home. This may be a large undertaking for someone working by themselves so we recommend partnering with one of our HOME team members.
