If you are like most other agents and/or home buyers and aren’t going through an auction sale, there are a few things that should always be done before making any final deals. After the many years of experience that I have behind me, it still amazes me how many people neglect to have a proper home or building inspection done by someone who is licensed and insured.
More that Meets the Eye
Now this may or may not come as a shock to you, but not everyone is as honest and trustworthy as we would like to imagine and this is especially the case for those who are selling their home. Even if you don’t go through an auction and can fully inspect the house yourself, it is always important to have a professional home inspector do a full inspection and make sure everything is in working order.
If things don’t come back looking so good, make sure you hold the seller and their agent responsible.
You don’t want yourself calling construction companies like these to do any major repairs for your house right after you made the purchase right? This is where the home inspector comes in because the possibility that problems behind the walls or in the foundation are higher than you might like to think.
Again, this might seem obvious to a lot of you out there but you wouldn’t believe how many stories I have heard of people getting burned simply because they neglected to take the time and money to follow through.
