a home can be expensive. It might feel like once you’ve entered escrow, you have new things to pay for at every turn.
While the fees are normal and customary, if you don’t buy a home often, you might wonder if they are all necessary.
One expense that is often discussed is inspections. What inspections do you need and how should you choose the right person to perform them. During the home inspection contingency period, you have a right to perform as many investigations as necessary
to determine the condition of the property you are buying. Typically you will want to make sure there are a home inspection and a termite inspection.
Other options could include a radon inspection, mold inspection, geological survey, septic tank certification, roof inspection and pool/spa inspection. The type of inspection is determined by the condition of the home. Most buyers start with the basic
home inspection. Home inspections are very important. They can assist in finding issues out that may be hidden or major costs and investment in the future. But ultimately, it's peace of mind know the condition of your new home!
There is no substitute for a proper inspection by a licensed home inspector. You might be handy or have a handy friend, but the home inspector is experienced in identifying problems and potential problems so you can make an informed decision about moving
forward with the sale.
