When you’re buying a home for sale in Lake City, your real estate agent will walk through it with you to help point out things you might not have noticed.
But how can you tell if a seller is trying to hide something?
Check out this list of signs a seller might be hiding something.
Signs a Seller Might Be Hiding Something
- There’s lots of music around the house
- The furniture is “off”
- There’s a strong smell… of air freshener
It’s nice to hear mood music throughout the house – it can really help you buy into the lifestyle. However, if there’s a lot of music that seems a bit loud, ask your agent to turn it off. It could be masking traffic noise that you’ll have to deal with when you move in.
If the furniture in a room looks off, like there’s only a love seat and no sofa, or all the rooms have twin beds, the sellers might be trying to make each room look larger than it really is. Try to envision your own furniture in the space to figure out whether it’s your eyes playing tricks on you or the current owners are really minimalists.
Nobody wants to encounter funky smells when they’re house-hunting, but drowning them in air fresheners is twice as bad – it means the sellers are being deceptive. If there’s an overwhelming odor of candle fragrance or Febreze in a room, it might signal that there’s something gross lurking underneath.
