Advice on purchasing 1820's home...
An early 1820's saltbox home has recently come on the market in my area, and appears to be updated. It has a new roof, and many additions, and looks well kept from the photos. We are hoping to go see it this week and I'm really hoping the inside lives up to the pictures. It is not an inexpensive fixer upper, but fairly affordable for a home of it's age and condition...can anyone offer some advice as to what my Husband and I should be weary of? I love the house so far, but of course our first thoughts are, "what's wrong with it?!?"
Right now my concerns are:
Anything else we should be cautious of or ask about? Everything inside has been painted and LOOKS to be updated...it even has skylights so I don't feel I need to be concerned about lead (we have small children and I noticed from the photos the current owners do too...)
