Today we’ll discuss why it’s essential for you to have a home inspection before buying a home. A good inspection will investigate all the major systems of the home, including the electrical, plumbing, roof, and heating/air units to make sure the home is in a condition that will not cause immediate issues upon purchase.

Having a full inspection is critical, and it’s important to know of any and all potential issues that come with the home. An inspection will reveal issues that are undetected by the naked eye. An inspector will also crawl under the home to inspect for pests, termites, and potential rot issues.

A good agent should always recommend to have an inspection done once the buyer’s offer is accepted. The cost ranges anywhere from $350-$550, but the ability to alert you to major problems within the home makes it well worth the price.

Many times, a responsible seller will have an inspection done prior to putting their home on the market just to ensure the home is in good working order. Doing so also gives the seller the opportunity to fix any potential problems before a buyer can even find them.

If you’re looking to purchase a home at any point, make sure you get a home inspection! If you don’t, it could end up costing you thousands in repairs and improvements.
