Insist on a Home Inspection

A professional home inspection protects both you and the buyer. It allows both you and the buyer the opportunity to learn about the property’s defects.

A home inspection usually covers the following:

*Plumbing conditions – if there is leakage or clogging
*Roofing conditions – the extent of deterioration, if there is leakage, life of the roof
*Electrical conditions – if there are inadequate circuits or potential fire hazards
*Structural problems – if there are problems with the underlying foundation of your home

As a seller, the home inspection reports protect you because it establishes the actual condition of the property at the time of sale.

A buyer may decide to hire their own inspector. If so, don’t panic. Relax and be assured that it is better to learn about any possible issues to address sooner rather than later.
