Hi, This is a pretty simple question really–Should You Get a Home Inspection??? The answer is probably always Yes. Look at it this way.—Almost Every Home has things that can use repair–things age and break like you and me—I shouldn’t remind myself of that tho—anyway before I get off on that tangent, lets get back to the home inspection discussion.— My concern as a Realtor, maybe even representing you, is to have a qualified home inspector give the house a pretty thorough look. Things like operating range/oven/stove-top or what have you. The furnace, air conditioner, fireplace, electrical plugs and breaker boxes–plumbing leaks, water heater all the things that can cost Big $$$ if and when they break, and everything does, eventually.— It’s just a matter of when.— This inspection gives you a heads up advantage of trying to determine the overall condition of the home you want to buy.—So you write a check for $400 or so to Help Protect Your Hiney, especially when you are about to spend Tens or Hundreds of Thosands of Dollars.— Better Safe than Sorry I say.— The Inspector I have been using is also a General Contractor who is familiar with Building Codes and the like and I and my clients feel more comfortable using someone who knows building rather than someone who may or may not. Remember to discuss this with your Realtor when you decide to purchase a House which You will make into Your Home.— See You Next Time—Buy Buy Now.
