Remember when looking at older homes, be cautious of working with an agent that has not personally remodeled or intimately supervised the remodel of a home and you are considering buying a home more than 10 years old...run for the hills or the new homes with that agent. Almost anyone can get a real estate license today, the exam is very basic and the requirements are nearly a joke when considering the strong demographics here in Encinitas. Ask your agent where they live, why, and if they have ever remodeled a home before. These questions often allude to your agents approach to the business. If they have never lived in or fixed up an older home, how do they know anything about older homes? Maybe they have been present for 100's of home inspections on older homes, that's valuable, especially if big repairs resulted from these inspections and they helped schedule and supervise some of the work (hopefully asking questions and learning the entire time). Learning about home repairs as a result of deferred maintenance, construction failures or natural hazards (water issues, soil issues, terrain issues) is a vital component of your agents wherewithal to either save your bacon or at least strive to raise every awareness flag that they can to educate you and help you make a better decision and hopefully one that will result in your improving or at least preserving your financial situation. To really understand residential construction and all of the systems that make up a home and that are first to fail, one must have some real on-the-job-training in regards to construction methods and understanding where contractors or subcontractors may have cut corners that lead to failures down the road. Relying exclusively on a $400 home inspection is not prudent, your agent must know much more about the home, the property and the area than the home inspector and hopefully your agent can already know about or swiftly identify any larger pitfalls (almost always exclusively through intel gathering) before it's too late which is normally the 18th day of your escrow.
