What to look for during an open house?,
As if there wasn't enough to keep in mind --
The comments are worth a look as well.
Check out the garage too. Look for chemical staining on the floor, odd electrical wiring.
Meth contamination is just as big a problem, even if a lab wasn't present.
Agreed, Patrick. As inconvenient or awkward as it might be, talk to the neighbors if you're serious! My grandmother lived next door to a house that was being rented to a bunch of users. Even at 90+ years old, she could tell you what was going on. It happens in good neighborhoods too.
