If furnace and water heater are newer than the 60s, that will be good. The old ones can last forever, but newer ones are so much more energy efficient. Are the windows and roof newer as well? Original windows are probably letting out a lot of heat if they weren't replaced in the remodel.

Good luck! Is this your first house?
thanks for the advice.
this is a upgrade to a single family house from a 2003 townhouse.
we are think about putting a bid bcz the schools are higher ranked than the ones we have now. otherwise, wouldnt want to move. I have tennis courts and an adjace playground within 50 steps from my place now.
