Warranty & Home Inspections: Why They're Crucial for Your Investment, Lincoln, Nebraska

Home ownership is a significant investment, and you need to enter into a real estate deal with care. That’s why it’s crucial to have a home inspection before you make a purchase or a warranty inspection before your new construction warranty agreement expires.

Why Home Inspections Are Important

Before you buy a home, it’s essential to have a home inspection to detect expensive problems so you can request repairs from the seller or negotiate a lower purchase price. The inspection process includes;  foundation, plumbing & electrical, HVAC systems, roof, decks, appliances, and other safety items. Most home inspection will also include an inspection for termites and radon testing. However, home inspections can vary from one provider to another, so find out exactly what's included before you hire someone to check the house.

Home inspection companies should be insured to protect against costly oversights or errors during the inspection process. The insurance provides protection against the cost of repairs in case an issue that should have been caught during the inspection causes a problem shortly after you move into your new home.

Why A Home Warranty Inspection Is Important

Lincoln-NE-home-inspectionIf you’ve bought a new-built home, it's easy to assume it will be problem-free for a long time. However, the warranties provided by most builders expire after one year, so any repairs needed due to improper construction after that point are the responsibility of the homeowner. Before your home warranty expires, it’s smart to arrange a home inspection to uncover potential problems like drainage issues, material defects or workmanship errors so they can be taken care of by the builder while under warranty.

Don’t purchase a home or let your home warranty expire without arranging an inspection. It could reveal small problems before they become expensive issues.
