THE IMPORTANCE OF GETTING A HOME INSPECTION

 

Before you fall completely in love with your new home, you may want to wait until the home inspection is complete. It's important to find a home inspector that you trust in order to get you through that important phase of the home buying process. A good home inspector, like a good Realtor, will go through ongoing training to make sure they stay on top of their education and the latest information.

The home inspection is one of the most important aspects of the home buying process. Contrary to what you may think, a home inspection is necessary for new construction as well as older homes and can tell you a lot about the overall condition. The results of the home inspection may not hinder your decision whether to buy the home, but it will arm you with the information you need to go into the transaction with a clear idea of the state of your home and possible repairs it may need.

Some home buyers may not see the value of a home inspection and feel they can see just as much as the inspector. However, it’'s not just what's on the surface. A good home inspector has the structural insight to tell you a lot about the condition of the home, based on what they can visually see externally, but also what they might be able to determine by the condition of the foundation, what’s in the attic and all those other hard to reach areas of the home.
