Why a Home Inspection is Important

Are you investing in a residential property? Before the deal is finalized and you pay a lot of money for a house, you should have a home inspection completed. There are many advantages to having a skilled professional evaluate your future home before signing the papers, and we have listed a couple of the reasons below.Suffolk Real Estate

Determine Current Value of Home

One of the main reasons people have a house inspected is to determine the overall value of the property. In addition to the size of the lot and the condition of the house, a thorough home inspection can help to determine the true value of a property. A professional inspection can reveal minor and major issues that may not be immediately visible during an initial tour of the property and could prove to be costly repairs.

Locate Minor & Major Issues

During the inspection, a qualified inspector will look at every part of the house trying to locate any issues no matter how small or big. Before buying a home, you want to know that everything is up to code and if there are structural, mechanical, electrical, and possibly other issues that need to be addressed before you move your family into a new home.

Useful in Negotiations

If there are issues with the home, you can use the inspection report when negotiating with the seller for a better price and/or for having certain issues resolved before closing.
