A home inspector is a person that will inspect the home from top to bottom and give you a detailed report on what he found or did not find.
This is a question that many people often ask and the answer is -- of course you should.
The biggest problem when people look to buy a home is they tend to overlook things that may cost them down the road. People fall in love with a home without many times really taking a closer look at it and what problems it may have that need fixing. This is where the home inspector comes in, recommends Todd Tretsky of CRE-Finance.
What Is A Home Inspector?
A home inspector is a person that will inspect the home from top to bottom and give you a detailed report on what he found or did not find. It is a report that is not bias or slanted to help one side or the other.
On this report you will see what they found wrong with the home, if anything. Things that are usually checked are roof, basement, heating system, water heater, structure, plumbing, and electrical just to name a few. A lot of times the homeowner may even help pay for one if they want to sell the home quickly and have nothing to hide.
Most states require that home inspectors be licensed, so that is something that you will want to make sure of. Some homeowners will have the home inspected before it is even sold and will give future buyers a copy of it. Look it over carefully and contact the company to make sure they actually did the inspection of the home. A home inspector is something that you should use. It also gives the future homeowner peace of mind knowing there home was a inspection completed and no defects surfaced.
Once the home is inspected and you have the report go over it very carefully so you can craft a great offer for the home. Factors such as neighborhood, condition of home, asking price should all be figured in when you make an offer. Many times people make offers without getting all the information they need. For you to make an offer on a home, you as the buyer need to get as much information as possible.
