    Default Hundred year old home

    Hope I am in the right area. I am looking at purchasing a home built in the late 1800's. It has a lot of the original features and seems to be in great shape - roof, heating, A/C, porches all updated and/or changed in 2006. From what I can see it is move in ready, but what should I be looking for behind the pretty walls and new paint? Any help greatly appreciated

    Have a structural engineer do a pre purchase inspection it costs about 150 more then average home inspector but these are good eyes to have a look see. Be sure the electrical service panel cover is removed to see how new the wiring is. Contact utilities to see average costs. Check with the building code department to see what and when permits pulled and if all passed. Good luck

    Thanks, going to take a second look on Friday. In mean time will start looking for engineers.
