There are big ticket items that you need to check out before buying a home. They are: plumbing, sewer, electrical, roof, termites, and possible asbestos. If any of these items need replacement they will run about 5k a piece. It is vital that you have an home inspection done by a licensed professional. If they find any problems you must negotiate the price of repairs with the owner or you may be stuck holding the bag.
