Getting a home inspection is a vital part of the home buying process. It is extremely important to protect yourself by getting a home inspection right away once your offer is accepted. You typically will have about 10 days once you are under contract to get the home inspected.
The home inspection basically ensures that the home’s foundation, roof, walls, windows, ceilings, heating and electrical and plumbing systems, and entryways are up to certain standards.
Many buyers have been saved from unexpected expenses by taking the time to invest the $300-$400 to get a home inspection as part of the sales contract process. If you need help finding a Home Inspector, I am always happy to give my clients recommendations for many reputable local service providers. I am also available as your Buyer’s Agent to represent you during this process if you live out of town and cannot be present for the inspection and/or on-site follow-up visits by local contractors, if required.
