What can happen to a home when it stays vacant for 3+ years?
Hi, I am new here, so please excuse me if I am in the wrong place. I am purchasing a home that is 40+ years old, a pier & beam raised ranch. The house inside seems to be level and very well cared for! All hardwood floors (I think the owner wore socks!) The owner passed away over 3 years ago. It was given to the family who come to the house weekly to mow, trim and go inside, just to make sure everything is fine. Since it has been vacant for 3+ years, I wonder what types of issues could come up? The water has been shut off all this time and the heater hasn't been on. It's on city sewer and water. Its located in a drier climate (west Texas) so the humidity is relatively low. Not much freezing during the winter either. Any thoughts? Thanks a bunch!
