Septic System. Is there standing water over the septic tank or the drain bed or around the foundation of the house? When was the last time the tank was pumped? Are the cover and tank in good repair? You should also contact a certified professional to conduct a thorough inspection of the system to make sure it meets all state and local building and health codes before you bid on the property.
Roof. Is the peak straight and level or do you see signs of sagging? Also look for worn or missing shingles, loose flashing, rotting under decking or trim.
Doors. Do all doors, inside and out, fit square? Look for signs of rot around door trims and especially the thresholds. Also look for signs of cracking at the thresholds that might indicate a problem with the foundation. Check to make sure the doors all seal properly, too, or your winter heating bills could be sky high.
Windows. Look for gaps and rotting around window frames. Also check to see how old the windows are. Are the windows energy efficient and easy to clean? Look for broken panes in basement and attic windows that are most often overlooked.
Driveway. Check the driveway for cracks and crumbling. Also look for dips in the pavements that might indicate a problem with the soil underneath. Has the driveway been recently sealed?
Fencing. Walk the entire fence to look for gaps. Especially if the fence is covered up by foliage. If the property has a pool and one of the neighborhood kids can sneak through your fence, you're liable if there's an accident.
Gutters. Make sure all of the gutters slope toward the downspouts and the the downspouts extend away from the house. Look for signs of pooling water around the foundation and check for rust and leaks on the gutters.
Siding. Look for loose pieces of siding, gaps and holes. If there are loose pieces, check for water and weather damage underneath.
Patio/Sidewalks. In most cities it's the property owner's responsibility to make sure the sidewalk in front of their property are in good repair. Look for cracks and crumbling and possible tree root damage.
Foundation. Note the slope of the property and look for signs of standing water around the foundation. Also look at decks and door and window jams closely. When a door or window won't shut properly it could indicate a problem with the foundation.
Furnace/Air Conditioning. Look at the furnace and air conditioner. Are they clean and in good repair? How old are they? Will they need to be replaced soon? What are the average bills? When was the last time the vents were cleaned?
Water Heater/Softener. Again, you want to know how old the units are, are they clean and in good repair? Look for signs of leaks on the floor around both units. Is the water heater large enough to handle your needs?
Electrical System. Check the breaker box. If the house is still using the old fuses, you're going to need to replace that electrical system soon. Check all light switches and electrical appliances. If you're a computer family, look to see if there are enough outlets in each of the rooms to handle your needs.
Plumbing System. Flush toilets and turn on taps to check the water pressure. Look at pipes under sinks and in the basement and check for leaks and signs of water damage. It's also a good idea to have a licensed plumber perform an inspection of the entire system out to the point where your pipes meet up with the municipal pipes to make sure there's no hidden, underground pipe damage that could result in costly repairs.
