I really need help...
To make a long story short, DH, my three children and I are wanting to embark on something new. We live on the West Coast, and have fallen in love with a 30 acre horse farm, & home built in 1784 (on the East Coast). Since we are on the opposite coast, we want to do as much research as possible before making an offer.
The big question is what do we need to think about?
The seller disclosure states that there is no known lead... but should we still have the home tested?
The house has a new septic system, and a new well. THe roof was replaced in 2002. Forced Hot Air was added in 2001 (tho I do not know if it is upstairs and down or just downstairs). It has 2 lined chimneys and 8 fireplaces. Copper pipe for the plumbing. The attic and exterior walls have blown in and fiberglass insulation.
Its extremely well maintained, and has everything I have ever dreamed of in a home. But, I am afraid of taking on a home that is this old, and winding up having problems in the future.
Is there anything else we should be thinking of? Thank you all so much for your help/
