A freshly painted ceiling. If there’s a fresh coat of paint on one of the room’s ceilings—but not on the walls or in other rooms in the home—it could be covering a water stain (for example, from a leaky roof).
Space heaters or individual ACs. If a home has space heaters or air conditioning units set up in different areas of the house, it could mean that certain rooms don’t have adequate heating or cooling—and get too hot or cold.
A strong smell of air freshener. A hint of air freshener is fine—but if a room has an overwhelming smell of artificial freshness, that air freshener is probably being used to cover up another, less pleasant smell.
So, what does this mean for you? If you’re thinking about buying a home, it’s important to know some of the common red flags and what those flags might be signaling—that way, you can make an informed decision on whether the home is the right fit for you (and not get stuck with any unexpected repairs or issues after you make a purchase).
