When buying a home you are often asked if you want a home inspection. You may ask yourself your why you need to spend the money on such a thing when the house appears to be ok. Here I will provide you with the informative answers your looking for on why you should, yes, get a home inspection.
A home inspectors duty is to examine the physical condition of the property without being invasive. He/She will typically check for cracks in the foundation, inspect all appliances, look at the roof for leaks and estimate of age, seek out anything unusual in the attic, examine the plumbing fixtures, and so on... All things you should know before buying any property. You want to be familiar with the home your buying.
When is a Home Inspection done? Typically after a buyer enters into the contract. Before ratifying a contract you should always ask if there are any disclosures you should know about. You should also preview homes with open eyes and look for items such as discoloring on the walls for possible mold or sloping floors. Doing this before making an offer can save you time and money before ratifying a contract.
Where do "I" find a Home Inspector? You will want to go with a licensed and insured home inspector and of course someone you can trust! The best way to find one is through referrals from your Realtor, Family and friends.
