What You Can’t See Can be Spooky……

There are several potential anxiety points on the road to becoming a home owner and one of them involves the things you can’t really see. That’s what home inspections are for! A good home inspector will pinpoint areas that are cause for concern and/or items to be watchful of. Bear in mind there aren’t many properties that are 100% free of minor defects…. The main areas they will assess:

  • foundation
  • lot
  • roof
  • chimney
  • exterior
  • attic
  • interior leaks
  • basement (when applicable)
  • electrical
  • plumbing
  • appliances
  • heating/cooling system
  • odors

This is another reason to work with a licensed Realtor; it will be definitely be less scary!

Ditto on choosing a licensed home inspector—we strongly endorse that choice.

If the inspection identifies any issues that you don’t understand, or aren’t comfortable making a decision about immediately, your Realtor can help you navigate the situation wisely and within the time frame indicated in your contract.

Next up, we’ll talk about the rental inspection process…
