WHY YOU NEED A HOME INSPECTION, EVEN IF IT’S AFTER YOU MOVE IN.
Trust me, I get it. The current market can be REALLY challenging for buyers right now, and you may decide to waive inspections to win in a competitive, multiple-offer situation. Only you will truly know your comfort level to move forward, and it’s important, as professionals, that we provide you with all available options.
Even if you decide not to make your offer contingent on getting an inspection, it’s still important to gain as much knowledge as possible about your new home, even if it’s after you have already moved in. After all, how many years do you plan on living there? Effective budgeting and planning require full details… knowledge is power and ignorance is NOT bliss.
It is important to be aware of all safety issues, maintenance items to keep an eye on, and big-ticket replacements you may have to budget for. On top of the general home inspection, the other important inspection you should consider? Radon. this odorless gas is the leading cause of lung cancer among non-smoking adults.
