Ok, here's the deal...just bought another house and we'll be closing at the end of the month. In checking the house out on the county's property home page I found something weird. I was comparing that house (price wise, space wise) to others in the same subdivision. In doing so, I noticed that our house appears to be the only one that shows: FLOOR SYSTEM: WOOD W/O SUBFLOOR. All of the others houses on that street (about 25 more) and the subdivision (probably 125 total) all indicate WOOD W/ SUBFLOOR.
As far as I know, the same builder built all of these homes, so why would this one be built any different? They all range in price from around $175K to $250+K, and even the homes cheaper than ours have a subfloor noted. Any chance that the property page is incorrect? I can't see why all the houses in the neighborhood wouldn't have this same setup. In fact, there a couple of other houses in the subdivision that look almost identical to ours, and they're listed with a subfloor. Is there a way I can check for a subfloor? The master bedroom is on the ground floor, and my wife and I do have a queen size waterbed. Would this be a problem if there is indeed no subfloor? We have not had the home inspection yet, but hope to schedule that for some time next week. Is this something I should ask him?
Now, in searching the net, I did find a post in a new group that indicated subflooring is often only used when hardwood floors are installed. This house doesn't have hardwood, it's carpet and tile, so if indeed it doesn't have a subfloor would that explain it?
If anyone can offer advise, and explain a subfloor I sure would appreciate it. Needless to say, since I don't know anything about this I'm freaking out and praying that I didn't buy a piece of crap that I'll go crashing through! :)
