Not Just A Home Inspection…A Home Instruction!

Smart Homebuyers Hire a Home Inspector and Here’s Why You Should Too

From your Friends at Home Quest Home Inspection!

If you think about skipping the home inspection, you might want to think again. The home inspection is a fundamental part of the home buying process and something you should definitely consider.

A good real estate agent will recommend that you include a home inspection when making an offer. As the buyer, you are paying for the inspection but there are significant benefits a Newtown home inspection will provide for you.

  1. A good home inspector matters

During the home inspection, we are inspecting the current condition of the home, looking for safety, function, and structural issues. Be sure to ask us about additional services we can provide for you; we want to be your one-stop-shop.

  1. Know that the home inspection report will always show something

Within 24-hours or sooner of the home inspection, the goal is to provide you with a comprehensive, full-color, digital inspection report that highlights both positive and negative findings. It is important to remember that the home can’t actually fail the inspection, as there is no grading or pass/fail system, only to provide the findings of the home for you to make your most informed buying decision.

Also know that no home is perfect, not even a brand new home. Don’t be overwhelmed if you see a long list of items found on the inspection, most will be informational items, some may be items that you’ll negotiate with the seller.

Furthermore, the home inspection identifies issues found on the day of the inspection and does not predict future outcomes. Your home inspector may include recommendations of what to look forward to.

If you’re thinking of skipping the home inspection, this is not a good idea. First, the home inspection is one of those “always call for a professional” type of job. We can see obvious issues but only very few are experts in identifying the severity of the issue. Plus, the home buying process is a sentimental journey (especially if you are a first-time homebuyer). That being said, it is best that you leave this integral step in the hands of an unbiased third party.

It’s also a good idea that you attend the home inspection. This way you can ask questions and know of any situation first hand.

How do I Find a Good Home Inspector?

Your real estate agent can recommend professionals to help you with your home inspection process. You can either accept their referral or do your own research. Just know that not all states require licensing or certification requirements so be sure you are doing your research in finding the best-qualified, most experienced inspector in your area.

The Newtown, CT home inspection will be an additional expense in the home buying process but considering the knowledge of knowing what issues there are if any, you will be able to make your most informed buying decision.
