Boston Condos for Sale and Apartments for Rent


Conducting a home inspection on a rainy day

There are some advantages of having a Back Bay or a Seaport condo home inspection conducted on a rainy or snowy day.

Let’s start with the roof or skylight you may notice it needs repair, there will probably be some visible signs of a leak. Be sure to look up at the ceiling occasionally as you are walking around. If you see signs of a previous ceiling repair or variations in the ceiling paint, it may be worth asking about.

There is another bonus of conducting home inspections on a rainy day…it’s likely that you can examine window seals for leak.

Boston condo tip. Before enter an open house on a rainy or snowy day. The seller’s agent likely will provide a spot to wipe your feet or have shoe covers handy).

I’m not a home inspector, but I’ve been at hundreds of home inspections with clients and have picked up a few tips along the way. I have many more home buying tips to share. Feel free to get in touch!
