Why Home Inspections Are Necessary: Get Your Home Purchase Inspection Scheduled Today
You've finally done it, congratulations! You have found a home or property that you were looking for. Every thing looks great, the property was staged, which gives you the opportunity to see what it will look like with your furniture. Before you close the deal, there are a few things we'd like for you to consider.
Why a home inspection?
There are many things to consider. In the age of DIY (do it yourself) and youtube, many home sellers scurry to fix, upgrade or paint already damaged or problematic issues. Some of the work we inspect out there is just plain crazy. Many times the property has been flipped/rehabbed without proper building permits. This can be a serious safety concern, as well as problematic, if you decide to sell to someone that wants to see permits.
Many times we encounter homes that are not properly cared for by homeowners, differed maintenance is quite common. Hating & Air conditioning systems, Water heaters, Roofs etc., all need maintenance and eventual replacement. You cant imagine the damage one leaking faucet can cause over time.
Home inspections are an essential part of the home-buying process. You should never buy a property without a home inspection, because the truth is, there can be many hidden issues with your home. There could be damage or safety concerns that you can’t see. If you don’t catch those before you make the purchase, you could be locked in to buy the home and unable to back out of the purchase. Home inspections are designed to save you time and money in the long run. Home inspections may give you negotiating power if there are problems and the knowledge that you’re making a solid purchase if there aren’t. If the inspection report comes back virtually clean, you can continue with the purchase with piece of mind. . If the report has deficiencies (negative findings), you can work with your agent and the seller to help reduce your offer or ask the seller pay for any repairs.
