Pre-Purchase Home Inspections by the Buyer
A home inspection is a worthy investment. Most people know you need a home inspection before you buy a house. If you donít, let me give you a reminder: You can end up buying a can of worms that may cost you tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention all the headaches. A qualified, unbiased home inspector is worth their weight in gold.
Not getting one, is like buying a used car without taking it for a test drive, Sounds crazy, right? But think about it, when it comes to buying a house you are literally investing at least fifty times more money, and when people spend more time buying their car, than they do getting a house properly checked by a pro, they pay for it.
A Blue Jay Home Inspection will help reduce your risks, by identifying conditions that may affect your decision to buy, not to buy, or renegotiate. They can tell you which ones need to be addressed now and which ones can wait, and what it might take to make it right. Then from there, you can make an informed decision about your future and decide if the home is worth your investment.
Too many times people fall in love with the eye candy Ė granite countertops, hardwood floors, crown-moulding, 8-foot ceilings, stainless steel appliances, etc. Ė and they donít see the water damage on the ceiling, the mould in the bathroom; crumbling mortar on the exterior, or the rotting framing around windows. These conditions will be reported to you in an easy to understand manner (verbally, and in the Blue Jay Home Inspection report) with prioritized recommendations.
A good home inspector is supposed to help you look beyond the surface and see a potential home for what itís really worth. But the key here, is hiring someone who can immediately tell you if something doesnít look right. You want someone who will tell you the truth about a home, even if it means walking away and not buying it.
Not getting a home inspection before buying a home, is probably one the worst things you can do as a homebuyer. I donít know too many people who regret getting a home inspection, but I do know plenty who regret not getting one.
