Tips for Buying a QC House During the Winter

The forecasted “blizzard” has finally arrived in the Quad Cities, so if you’re staying home and enjoying a snow day from work or school, then check out the latest online selection of Quad City homes for sale from The Bassford Team.

Although it might not seem like it right at the moment, this blustery round of winter weather blowing in from the west could be quite helpful to anyone who is trying to buy a house in the Quad Cities…or anywhere else that experiences severe freezing precipitation like snow and sleet.

Think about it: When it’s a warm, picturesque day with the sun shining and the birds chirping, the excitement & anticipation of buying a new house makes it tricky to look past the bells & whistles of a shiny new property to see its potential problems. Here at The Bassford Team, we thought we’d celebrate this snow day in our own way by highlighting a few important factors to keep in mind when purchasing a home, including:

  • Location: Remember that snow removal vehicles and salt trucks work the busiest streets and neighborhoods first, so if you select a property on the outskirts of town, be prepared to wait a little longer to leave your house.
  • Driveways & Sidewalks: While they may seem perfectly fine in the summertime, winding walkways, stairs/steps, and personal paths to your new house could be difficult to navigate during icy conditions.
  • Patios and Porches: Recreational outdoor areas are a main attraction when buying a new house, however, these settings can become extremely slippery and hard to maneuver, especially for our four-legged furry friends.
