Should I Have a Home Inspection?
11:05 am cdt
I've had a few clients lately that have chosen not to conduct a home inspection on the properties
they are purchasing. There's always a reason: "It's a condo, what can be wrong?" or "I am trying to save money."
or "I did a walkthrough of the place with my dad/contractor/uncle and it looks fine."
spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on the biggest investment you will make in a lifetime. I'm not saying that your
dad/contractor/uncle doesn't know their stuff. But it's always best to have a third party professional give your house the
once-over. Buying a home is not the time to try to save money on such an item, or to be cheap. One thing that is missed at
your once-over could cost you thousands of dollars. What if the HVAC goes out? Or the sump pump?
please, please. Pay for a professional home inspection.
