Why You Should Get A Home Inspection

It’s easy to get carried away in the excitement of buying a new home and forget to make the important decision to have a home inspection done.

Home inspections are an important part of the home-buying process that can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. home inspection

It is important to understand the difference between a home inspection and appraisal. Appraisals will not provide you with a detailed look at a property that can help uncover deep-rooted problems and potential pitfalls that a home inspection can provide.

Know What You’re Buying

The most important reason to have a home inspection done before you buy is to know what you’re buying. The more you know, the fewer surprises there will be down the road. Home inspectors can help you make a decision based on your current budget as well as your future time and money investment.

Don’t Judge a Book by Its Cover

Especially for those buying newer construction, a home inspection may feel like a waste of money. No matter the age of the home, there can be costly troubles unknown to the average buyer. Problems with wiring, plumbing and easement may not be visible during a showing and you’ll want to get an expert opinion.

Seller’s Repairs

When getting a home inspection done it is important to share this report with your Realtor so they can negotiate repairs if needed. If the seller is unwilling to complete the repairs, estimate the cost and ask them to take that amount off the total.

Save Money

Home inspections generally cost from $300 to $500 depending on size and age of the home. That’s a good sum, but perhaps think of it this way: Those who skip out on the expense may realize in a few years that an inspection is much cheaper than rewiring the entire house.

I am absolutely DELIGHTED to offer my review of Karey. We contacted her at the beginning of February, 2016. We had been offered a purchase price on the house that we had been renting for a year....and we had NO IDEA what to do next. My friend, who bought... (more)
