I'm pretty sure your apt has had many tenants, a home would have had far fewer occupants, typically.

When you look at a house, pay attention to things you can't easily change. Are the rooms big enough, is it on a busy street, is it next to a church or school (they get sold).

Make a list on non-negotiables, like number of bathrooms, big backyard, whatever.

Most other things, you can fix/change, over time. My master bath was electric pink, with green tile and a blue floor! Under $100 gave me aloe walls and green flooring

Figure out your price, and stick to it. Do NOT skip the home inspection. Hubby and I ran a business where we'd go in and deep clean after closing. Check into it. We charged around $300.
