Home Inspections

home inspection

This is a must for new and old homes alike. An inspection will determine the condition of the plumbing, heating, cooling and electrical systems. The structure should also be examined to assure it is sound and to determine the condition of the roof, siding, windows and doors as well as the safety features of the home. The lot should be graded away from the house so that water does not drain toward the house and into the basement. Most buyers prefer to pay for these inspections so that the inspector is working for them, not the seller. Don’t let minor deferred maintenance issues or non major discrepancies ruin the deal for your dream home.

Keep in mind that no house is perfect and anything & everything can be fixed. The question is – at what cost? You & your Real Estate Agent should discuss discrepancies found and decide if you want or need further negotiations. Your Real Estate Agent is obligated to look out for your best interests.
