I am considering buying a ranch home in Northeast Ohio. Its a 3 bedroom. Built in 1980. A friend has discouraged me from buying this style. Friend says to prefer colonial style home because:
- ranch home is likely to be colder in winter because of poor/no insulation of ducts.
- moisture penetration from the slab.
- ranches with 3 bedrooms are difficult to sell.
Seeking opinions and thoughts on this issue.
Also, I am looking for a home inspector who might educate me on the pros and cons of a purchase with his opinion, on or off the record.
