The home-buying process can be a long one. You might spend months searching for the right home before you make an offer and once an offer is made and accepted, you have to jump through several more hoops before the sale even closes.
An important part of the process is the home inspection where a professional makes sure everything in the house is sound and functioning properly.
Without a home inspection, you’re basically relying on the seller to disclose everything that’s wrong with the house. There is no guarantee that the seller will be forthcoming, while others genuinely might not know all the issues. Having an impartial expert come in and evaluate the house is the best way to get an honest, informed opinion.
Top 6 reasons you want to hire an inspector before you buy:
Find structural problems.
Uncover potential safety issues.
Reveal possible plumbing/electrical issues.
Provides an ‘out’ for the buyer.
Forecast potential future expenses.
Peace of mind.
