The Importance Of A Home Inspection

Buying a home is often one of the most significant financial transactions a person will ever make. So how do you protect your investment? Do your homework from the start.

Whether you find yourself in a bidding war or have your sights set on a fixer-upper, there is never a good excuse to skip a home inspection. A stager may have done a spectacular job at making the house look picture-perfect but there are often problems hiding beneath the surface that could lead to headache and financial stress down the road. Enter the home inspector, an individual who has the professional expertise needed to help uncover potential problems with the property.

What A Home Inspector Does

A home inspector does a lot more than give a cursory look at your would-be home. They take the time to dig deep and carefully examine places that the average person may not know about. Generally speaking, a home inspector will report back on the status of a home’s:

  • Foundation and structural system
  • Electric systems (this is especially important if you are house-hunting in an area that may still have knob and tube wiring)
  • Plumbing
  • Roof
  • Furnace and air conditioning units
  • Pipes, vents, and insulation

Working with a home inspector who is familiar with the area you are purchasing in can be helpful. They may have the advantage of knowing to look for location-specific issues such as termites, lead pipes, or water damage.

Before making any final decisions regarding a residential real estate transaction, it is important to speak with an experienced lawyer. They can offer practical advice and legal support that helps protect their clients best interests at every stage of the home-buying process.
