A home inspection comes at the end of your home buying process. This position has a tendency to be stressful to home buyers. In fact, fear of home inspection deal breakers is a common misconception. In this blog, we will address some potential home issues that could make or break a deal. Keep in mind, at the end of any home buying process, the decision to complete the purchase is completely yours. No matter what home issues are uncovered during a home inspection any issue can be repaired or resolved.
A new roof can be one of the most expensive repairs. However, if a home needs a new roof many sellers will include the cost of the new roof into the home price. This means the seller will decrease the price of the home to accommodate for the cost of the new roof. During a home inspection, your home inspector will walk on the roof and look for damage or any indication of need for repair.
Plumbing and Electrical
One of the most common home issues is with the plumbing or electrical. A leak in the wall or pipes, faulty wiring, or both can be an expensive repair. Worse, if you have to replace anything. The good news is most of these home repairs aren’t huge and can be taken care of fairly quickly. Home inspectors use infrared lights to detect water leaks behind a wall so you can feel confident that we will find any leaks even if it is not obvious to the naked eye.
Sinkholes or Foundation Issues
In Florida sinkholes are becoming a nuisance. For this reason foundation inspections are one of the most important inspections you need to have. Inspecting the foundation should be included with any home inspection. Any good home inspector will go into the crawl space if it is available and properly inspect the foundation. Any issues or concerns will be included in the detailed report.
