Do you want to think the best of people or are you suspicious by nature? Either way, it is good to avoid being too gullible in case someone takes advantage of you. While most sellers won’t try to hide things from the inspector, there are some that would. When this happens, and your inspector doesn’t catch it, you can face unexpected expenses later on.
There are some dead giveaways that something isn’t quite alright that you can pay attention to.
For example, if you notice a fresh coat of paint at a random spot in the home, it could be that they just fixed some minor dents or scratches, or it could be an attempt at hiding something.
If you notice furniture that just appears to be sitting in a weird spot, it is worth looking underneath it to see if it is covering some unsightly spot on the floor.
