You could rent the property for a weekend - doesn't hurt to check out the HVAC, appliances, electrical box, etc while you are there. Excellent idea. We rented a place for 10 days that we found out was for sale when we arrived. I spent quite a bit of time researching and documenting what I found to use in negotiations if need be. One of the issues I noted was a failing septic. We brought it to the sellers attention and told her we would not even consider submitting an offer without it taken care of. Would have not seen it without using the place, as it had been vacant for a while.One reason we chose not to buy is that we had to get in the car to do anything, even something as basic as a decent walk with the dog. The house we bought has a great road for hiking just around the corner, and a highly regarded hike with a waterfall 3 miles away. I like having options.IP
