Do I need a home inspection?
It is very risky to buy a home “as is”, as the home may need major repairs of which you or even the current homeowners are unaware. By investing in a home inspection prior to purchasing a home, you may save yourself thousands of dollars in necessary repairs.
How do I find a home inspector?
A home inspection is one of the most important contingencies of a home purchase, and therefore buyers should hire an experienced, certified home inspector. Your Magnificent Manors Realtor ® is one of the best sources for a home inspector as we work with them regularly and receive feedback from our clients about their work. Another resource for finding a home inspector is to contact the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI), www.ashi.org or reach out to family, colleagues or friends who have recently purchased a home.
What’s a home inspection?
A home inspection is a professional examination and assessment of a home. Often hired by prospective buyers, certified home inspectors will examine the home for defects or concerns so the buyer is aware of the condition of the home they are purchasing.
