Home Inspection

A complete home inspection is one of the most important steps in the home buying process. 

The home buying experience is an emotional one and it is hard to imagine any problems with the dream home you have just decided to purchase. That is why it is crucial to hire a professional home inspector to give a qualified, unbiased report of the state of the home you might see yourself living in for several years.

You want the home you purchase to be safe and free of any problems that could lead to large repair costs in the near future. It is a great idea to be present for the home inspection so you can talk to the home inspector and ask questions when and if they do find any issues. Their input and advice will be very helpful.

You will be given a full report of all the items covered in the inspection and any problems that need to be addressed. If any problems are found you will need to assess the severity of them and come up with ideas of possible solutions. The complete home inspection can actually become a tool for renegotiations of the home price. If a large issue is found often times you can negotiate for the seller to either fix the problem or lower the price enough so it covers the repair cost.

It is best to try to get the seller to handle the larger repairs as this will save you some headache and allows you to move into your home without having to deal with repairs right away. During the inspection you can ask the home inspector any questions you have. Your agent will be able to help you determine what issues need to be addressed and if it is necessary to renegotiate with the seller.

As long as you hire a professional inspector you can either rest easy about your home purchase or address any problems or issues that come up on the report. It is better to know about all the potential problems of the home before you go to closing.
