Three reasons to get a home inspection, and why buyers will benefit.
Why are inspections important when you’re buying a home? People often get hung up on the extra time or money it might take. However, there are three major benefits to doing a home inspection:
1. Gaining peace of mind. You’ll have a clear understanding of the home’s condition, so you’ll know what you’re getting into.
2. Gathering facts for negotiation and insurance. You can use the facts from the report to negotiate to have repairs done or get a credit from your seller. This will help you make sure you’re happy with the purchase. Also, you can use them to obtain insurance. Many insurance companies will want the report just to issue you a policy.
3. Learning information for the future. If you have the report done, you’ll know what to expect for any repairs and maintenance you’ll have down the road, and you’ll be able to plan.
These are reasons why I believe having a home inspection is important, and I know there are still many more. If you have any questions, please call or email me anytime. I’m here to help.
