Your home purchase is likely one of the biggest investments of your life and it’s important to know exactly what you’re buying. The best way to ensure this is through a professional and thorough home inspection.
Why You Need a Home Inspection
In your excitement to buy a home, it’s easy to miss a small crack in the foundation, some leaky pipes under the house, or a roof that needs to be replaced.
The sellers worked hard to make the home look as desirable as possible, but looks don’t tell the whole story. That’s where your home inspection comes in.
What about inspections for sellers?
While this material speaks primarily to buyers, it’s a good idea for sellers to do an inspection prior to listing their home for sale. An inspection can help you turn up issues ahead of time so there will be no surprises when serious buyers start inquiring. Knowing in advance means you’ll be able to consider all your options – either making repairs before listing or pricing your home to account for anything you’re not going to fix.
