There’s a lot of important investigative work to do before you make an offer, and much more after you have reached an agreement with the seller. Exactly what due diligence to do will vary around the country as the critical issues of concern are different around the country, and they are even different within a state and perhaps within a county. It’s important for a buyer to tap into local knowledge, and this is why a long time local buyer’s agent can be worth his weight in gold. There’s the home inspection, the well inspection, the septic inspection, reviews of documents, including the preliminary title report, covenants, plats or surveys, the building permit file, the county records, insurance records, possible water issues, wetlands issues, and more. I recommend searching the 2,200 articles on this blog to find articles I’ve written over the past dozen years on all of the various due diligence issues that come up in the Sequim area.
