I am looking for a home in a rural area in MI. All prior purchases have been suburban. Advice?

Best Answer
I usually recommend whole house inspections but most importantly water pump and septic inspections as well as termite and radon. Well and septic repairs/replacements can be major expenses. Consider asking for a home warranty with a purchase agreement. It can be invaluable if you need a septic system replaced in the first year.

My wife had an agent under value the house value by 25%, Can she be reported? Seems unethical.

Answer
Consider having a neutral party select an actual certified appraiser to determine a fair value for the property with provisions that each of you will honor the value brought forth. Make sure it's a neutral party, (not your spouse's cousin's brother, etc...).
