Buying a property is exciting, but it’s also a lot of hard work. We explained what you should be looking for in a new home in a previous post, and in today’s post, we’ll continue to explain what you should be looking for whenever you’re considering making an offer on a home.

Are you looking for an investment property in Park City? Don’t waste your time searching through unreliable real estate websites – contact a Realtor® from The Wilstein Team! We know the ins and outs of the Park City real estate market, and we’ve helped hundreds of people all over the United States find properties in Park City and the surrounding areas that fit their needs and their budgets.

Curb Appeal

Think of curb appeal as a first impression of the home you’re viewing. If the home’s exterior is shabby or damaged, it’s probably a good indication of what you can expect in the rest of the home. Has the homeowner taken care of the home’s roof, paint, sidewalks, and driveway? You don’t want to buy a home that requires a significant amount of outdoor renovation work, so take your first impression of a home seriously.

In today’s digital age, real estate viewings are almost always preceded by an online viewing. While real estate websites can certainly make it easier to find properties that fit your specifications, listings on real estate websites don’t always accurately reflect the current state of the home you’re viewing. At The Wilstein Team, we ensure that all of our real estate listings are updated and accurate.


It’s easy to overlook a home’s windows when you’re browsing real estate websites or attending an open house, but they’re one of the most important components of a home. A home with good windows can provide you with plenty of natural light during the day, reducing the amount of energy you consume. Once you’ve found a few homes that you’re interested in viewing, see if you can schedule viewings at different times of day to get a good idea of what living there would be like.

Park City has some amazing views to take in, and that’s one of the main reasons that the real estate market is so competitive right now. Whether you want a view of the city or the mountains, make sure that the property you’re pursuing won’t leave you wishing that you had paid just a bit more for a better view. If you’re not sure where to begin when it comes to finding a home with your ideal view, then just get in touch with one of our Realtors® to request more information!

Storage Space

It’s easy to get lost when visualizing your new living room or kitchen, but you shouldn’t ignore the importance of storage space when you’re buying a property. Real estate websites often focus on the highlights of a home like the kitchen and the living room, but you should always ask your Realtor® about the property’s storage space. Even if you’re planning on using your property seasonally, you’ll probably need somewhere to put your skiing gear other than the living room.

Stay tuned for future posts in which we’ll continue to provide you with things to look for when buying a home.
