Buying a home can be stressful and it’s easy to get caught up in the hype of competition and rush. It’s tempting to forgo the inspection. An inspection will identify things a buyer or homeowner can’t easily see such as termite damage or heating and air problems. In the hurry of a bidding war, there are still things you can do to make sure the home is inspected. Consider a pre-sale inspection or schedule one before even firming up the sale. The end result of buying a home without inspecting it first can cost you thousands later when the problems surface.
- In the haste to buy a house many home buyers forgo the inspections which can cause many problems down the road.
- Have the home inspected yourself. It will save money down the road and offer your protection in the future.
- Time your house inspection accordingly, so it doesn’t hold up the sale. This way the seller isn’t being delayed.
“No matter how badly you want the property or how emotionally attached you are to it, you don’t want to buy a home without having it thoroughly inspected.”
