3 Reasons to Have a Home Inspection Before Buying a House November 6, 2019

3 Reasons to Have a Home Inspection Before Buying a House, Red Wing, Minnesota

A home is one of the most significant investments you’ll make. You don’t want to discover problems after you buy a home, which is why inspections are a must. There’s no price tag on the peace of mind you’ll receive, and you may even find a better outcome from the transaction.

The Benefits of a Home Inspection

1. Discovering Hidden Issues

During a home inspection, professionals will look at all the core systems, including the plumbing, electrical, septic, and HVAC systems. They’ll ensure these, as well as the foundation and appliances, are all in good order. They’ll also look for signs of pests, mold, water damage, and lingering after-effects from previous issues. This ensures you know exactly what you’re getting.

2. Negotiating Power

Before you buy a home, you can request that the seller either lower the sale price to accommodate the repairs or that they handle the maintenance themselves. Either way, you’re getting a better deal, and the eventual improvements you or they make will increase value after you buy a home.

3. Having an Out

If you don’t like what you see or the seller isn’t willing to budge in the negotiations, the results of a home inspection give you a legal “out” from the deal. You won’t face any penalties after you’ve made your offer and can comfortably move forward with your new home search.
