Buyers should make sure their agent supplies them with a hard copy and link to the helpful due diligence information document, prepared by the Arizona Association of Realtors® called the BUYER ADVISORY. The Buyer Advisory is a living document and it contains many helpful links to guide you through investigating areas of interest and property concerns. With this information you’ll know what to watch out for and inspect well before seriously considering a property. Things like plumbing, heating in areas where winters are harsh, and the roof are just some of the basics to keep in mind. Then comes any upgrades or overhauls you might want to implement in your home. Things like load bearing wall repositioning in order to have the amount of rooms and/or size that your family requires should be considered into the budget well in advance of making a decision.
