Home Inspection

So, you are buying a home and think you don't need an inspection? Don't want to pay for one? Well lets see... in our area the median home is about $215,000. A home inspection is about $350.00. Based upon what you are willing to pay for a home an inspection on a purely financial basis isn't much.

How much do you really look at a home before you buy? Did you turn the stove on? Try the dishwasher? Or did you check the electric panel to see if all connections are done, aluminum wires are pigtailed and no doubles? No? Well an inspector will. All this and much, much more!

I can't encourage a buyer enough to make this added expenditure. Most inspections go quite well. Almost everyone uncovers some detail that needs attention. Occasionally they save the purchaser literally thousands. So when your agent asks about an inspection. Say YES!
