The Grand Canyon is one of Mother Nature’s incredible gifts to humanity, and one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Carved to a depth of more than a mile by the Colorado River over the course of millennia, the canyon is a truly awe-inspiring sight.
Few other places on our planet are as magnificent as the Grand Canyon. Standing near the canyon, it’s impossible not to feel dwarfed by its immense size and scale. Winding its way through 277 miles of the naturally beautiful Arizona desert, the Grand Canyon tells the story of nearly 2 billion years of Earth’s fascinating geological history.
The area surrounding the canyon is the ancestral home of several Native American cultures, including the Pueblo, Cohonina and Sinagua tribes. The Pueblo people considered the site a sacred place, and traditionally made pilgrimages there. Even today, several churches of diverse faiths offer religious services at Grand Canyon National Park.
If you are looking to invest at Foxboro Ranch Estates it will be important to know what attractions and points of interest are close to your new home. With such close proximity to Flagstaff, Arizona, you still have the experience of rural living not far from a growing city. This means there are a lot of things to see and do in and around the area.
Home building takes a lot of time and effort on the part of both the developer and the buyer. You want to be assured that you are getting the best for your money and that is why a home inspection is a good idea. But before you get to the point where you will hire a professional to examine the condition of your new home, you need to have a look at many facets of the building and lot yourself.
To make it a little easier, we have put together a checklist of things to have an inspector see when you are buying a lot and building a home in the high country. They include:
The perfect lot may not be so perfect if drainage does not move water away from the home. Also check the property for obvious soggy locations as these can become a bigger problem.
By getting an up close look at the base of each wall in the home you will be able to see if there are cracks visible. This may be a sign of shifts in the foundation. Also look at the entire outer wall from the outside as well to see if tree roots are growing into the foundation.
You will want to know when the roof was last replaced, if at all and what the current condition of it is. Metal will last longer than most any other kind of roofing material.
You will want to do a complete walkabout keeping an eye on where repairs may be needed soon. Observe all downspouts, eaves troughs, windows, siding and see if all are in good condition or in need of immediate attention.
By checking around all windows and ceilings you can spot evidence of water leaks. Staining will be your first clue.
Here you are looking to see how the roof structure looks. Sagging is not a good sign nor is staining or wet spots due to leaking.
Insulation and dampness are what you are looking at. You need more of one than the other. A damp basement or crawlspace is not healthy for you or your family.
Look for noises, slow moving drains, smells from drains as all signs of a problem with the sewer system. Find out when repairs were last conducted and for a septic system, when it was last pumped out.
Starting with the service panel, are there enough breakers to properly service the home? Is there room for more in case of an addition or expansion? Do the switches all function properly? Are outlets grounded properly?
If the home you are purchasing includes appliances, the age of each is crucial. The condition of the stove, refrigerator and dishwasher are all important factors.
The Heating/Cooling System
The age of the furnace and central air are important details to gather. When was the system last serviced and does it do the job it was meant to do?
