Playing 20 questions with a FSBO

Playing 20 questions with a FSBO

Hello Everybody,

This is my very first Forum submission and I hope it was ok to start this (U guessed it, I'm a newby). I was searching and could not find the info I needed.

Hopefully, I'm working on my very first deal which is a FSBO. I made an appointment to walk thru with the owner this Saturday (Oct. 18, 2008). I don't have and can't afford to pay a home inspector.

My question is, what do I ask the homeowner? I just want to make sure I'm not with her on Saturday and get stuck like a deer in headlights? Do I ask about her mortgage (in detail)? Do I just ask the basics and wait to see how free flowing she will be with information?

Please provide a heads up and questions to ask (specifically w/a FSBO) so I can be well informed and make as few mistakes as possible.

Thank you ALL,
Tamzen

Ask questions to warm up to

Ask questions to warm up to the grand finalie. Make sure you bring your check list to write information down about the property. Every detail counts. Dont be afraid to ask either cause I found that if you dont ask the answer is no. Good luck hope your deal works out

Warming up w/ questions

BMiller81,

What check list are you referring to? Is it in "Forms and Docs", titled "Calculating repair cost"?

Or did you mean questions like:

How old is the roof?
Was the Boiler replaced recently?
How many amps do the house have (that's an electrical question right?)
What type of insulation?
How old are the pipes? etc...
Do you have a mortgage, if so, how many? Is the mortgage assumable?

I feel like I'm leaving out/not thinking of pertinent questions?
