Top 3 Reasons Home Buyers Need A Home Inspection

Before the sale of a house is made final, homebuyers have a right to ask the seller to disclose and possibly repair any problems with the home.  Many issues like mold and even termites can go undetected and sellers may not even be aware that they exist at the time of a sale.  Having a home inspection is the best way for buyers and sellers to protect themselves.  For buyers, a home inspection will turn up any issues with the home that the seller may be responsible for.  For sellers- if any issue is discovered after the sale of the home, a completed home inspection performed at an earlier date will likely pardon you from responsibly, and likely reveal that the problem occurred AFTER the sale date.

Here are 3 important reasons why buyers need a home inspection:

  1. What you can’t see could really hurt you.  Many common and costly issues with homes are often invisible. Problems with wiring and plumbing may not be visible during a showing.  Get an expert opinion before you fork over that down payment.
  2. Be sure there are no structural problems.  Our licensed home inspectors will examine major structural areas like the roof and foundation to be sure that everything is in satisfactory condition. If serious problems are found, you can negotiate with the seller to either do the required repairs or give you the money to do the repairs yourself.
  3. You’ll end up saving money with a home inspection.  Inspections cost a few hundred dollars, but they could save you from thousands of dollars in repair if problems are uncovered before the sale is final.   An inspection is much cheaper than having to re-wire an entire house.
