The Importance of a Home Inspection

When purchasing a new home, it’s important to hire an inspector who will provide you with a written report of the current condition of the home. When making such a huge investment, it’s important that you don’t overlook this step. A home inspection will help to give you peace of mind in knowing that you are making a quality investment and that you know exactly what you’re getting as you move forward in your home buying process. If you’re satisfied with the results of the inspection, then your offer can proceed. If you aren’t, you may want to negotiate, asking the seller pay for repairs or asking for a lower price.

Some of the things you should have inspected are:

  • The structure of the home (walls, roof, foundation, etc.)
  • The exterior of the home
  • Electrical and plumbing
  • Systems (heaters and air conditioners, furnaces, fireplace, etc.)
  • Appliances
  • Garage
  • Doors and windows
  • Basement and attic

If any problems are found, we can work with you and the seller to negotiate a solution.
