Home Inspection: Buyers, Don’t Miss Out!!

Buyers, don’t miss out!  Always have any property that you are considering purchasing inspected!!  You, your agent, your parents…no one can catch what an inspector can discover, no matter how great a home may look to the naked eye.  Home inspections, including full house inspection, radon inspection, termite inspection, mold inspection, pool inspection, structural inspection, drainage inspection…they are infinitely important and can keep you from purchasing a money pit nightmare!  Not every inspection is necessary for every purchasing situation.  Your Realtor can help advise you.  Always have  a Realtor representing you as a buyer because, trust me, home inspection negotiations is where things can get dicey!      

Very often inspections are the buyer’s best negotiating tool regarding requesting repairs and updates and negotiating price!  Paying for home inspections will be the best money you spend when purchasing a home.  And the older the home, the more important a home inspection!

Post-inspection negotiation  is a major component of the home buying process, a component  in which you most need a Realtor to represent YOUR interests.  Select a Realtor that you feel confident can intelligently, boldly negotiate for you, often do battle for you!  Buyers and their Realtor should be at all home inspections.  Read Al Heavens’ RISMedia article, Home Inspections an Essential Tool for Buyers, for all the reasons you should spend some cash on home inspections!  Don’t scrimp in this arena!

To purchasing a financially healthy, safe  home~                                                        Rosemary, Atkinson-Thompson Group
