No home is perfect. Even new builds have their issues. However, there are also disastrous homes you want to stay away from. Here are a few things you need to know to avoid a disastrous home.
Get a home inspection
The best thing you can do for your home is get a home inspection. In fact, the worse thing you can do as a home buyer is not inspect the home before you complete the purchase. Too often things are missed when you don’t know what to look for. A seasoned home inspector follows a very extensive list and can educate you on your new home.
Ask a lot of questions
You have two opportunities to ask a lot of questions and you want to take advantage of both. Before the home inspection and during. You should always attend the home inspection so you can address any questions you have directly with the home inspector. You also want to give the inspector an opportunity to discuss their findings or any concerns with you.
Become familiar with a sample report
A sample report will give you a template of what to expect. Reports are very long and detailed but if you become familiar with a sample report then you can read your report more easily. Keep in mind, Divinity Inspection Services will keep your report in their database for up to a year.
Feeling confident about your home inspection also means feeling confident about your home inspector. At Divinity Inspection Service, we make sure you feel comfortable, confident, and excited about your new home!
