Home Inspections Facts
Purchasing a home can be a very emotional experience and therefore it is one that should never be taken lightly. There are lots of things about the transaction that you do not have control over, but there are many things that you do, for example the home inspection. Buyers have the right to request a home inspection when purchasing property. It can be written into the purchase and sale contract as a condition of sale. Oftentimes you can dictate the things that you want to have inspected, and by whom. Additionally, the inspection clause can define the dollar amounts of potential problems that you would be willing to live with or not. Because most people are not qualified to inspect a home, we recommend that you pay for a professional property inspection to be completed on the home you are trying to buy. The inspector will be able to give you lots of helpful information concerning the maintenance of your new home as well be able to inspect the home for any potential major defects with it. Most home inspections last anywhere from 1 to 3 hours and is well worth the fee.
