Im looking to buy a house and I have found a house that I really like and want to buy. There are a couple issues though. While the house cosmetically looks awesome because it has been entirely renovated recently, I am a bit worried that there could be hidden problems because the house is 125 years old.

What is the risk that such an old house can have need for serious repairs in near future despite a reputable/good inspector saying that the house is in good shape? What can be done to mitigate that risk?
