Check all plumbing, roof, foundation, basement for water marks, leakages... cracks on the basement floor if not a finished one...cracked outside walls/foundations... Depending on how much you are planning to put into the house... furnace (age of it) all windows... can they open... older homes tend to have their windows sealed... are you going to replace them??? Check all walls, electrical -- outlets, in and out doors... wiring in all rooms (light fixtures) also check the circuit boxes... are there enough, are they fuses or circuit breakers... Check attic spaces for leaks and insulation... make yourself a check list... what you do and don't want to replace (at least not right away in some cases) and then compare your notes to the findings... (dh is a licensed broker... kinda embedded in me...lol....)
Good luck with your home...

It's already been said but "Get the Home Inspected"...ours was $300 but they look at everything and you are there with them so they can show you any concerns. It's definately worth the piece of mind! Wouldn't hurt to test it for mold either...
