There are several reasons why you might want to consider a home inspection.
Whether or not you should get a home inspection depends on if you’re a buyer or seller, and what your motivations are. Today I’ll be walking through that to help you make the best decision for you.
If you’re a seller, you should consider getting a home inspection to be prepared, because then you know what buyers will find if they do an inspection. Plus, you’re being transparent about your house, so you might not have to fix anything. You can just say: “This is what the house is.” The home inspection will cover all kinds of items: windows, mechanical, the foundation, the plumbing, and electrical systems. These will all be inspected so a buyer can feel confident about what’s happening with your house.
In addition, a home inspection will help a buyer decide about your house. In this competitive buyer’s market, sellers need to be more transparent since there’s more competition. If you’re the one that provides information, it helps the buyer decide whether to make an offer on your house.
If you’re a buyer, it’s very important for you to get a home inspection. If the seller didn’t provide one, then you will want to do a home inspection to get an idea of what’s wrong with this house. There might be nothing, but you always want to have a baseline for what’s going on with the home that you’re thinking about buying.
Getting a home inspection will also help if you’re wanting to ask the seller for a credit or a repair. Plus, you can’t get certain loans if the house has too many issues that are revealed in the home inspection.
