THINK YOU CAN SAVE MONEY WHEN PURCHASING A HOME BY SKIPPING THE HOME INSPECTION? THAT COULD PROVE TO BE A VERY COSTLY MISTAKE.
As a home buyer – even if you are purchasing a home as-is – you have the right to conduct home inspections. You should take advantage of the due diligence period to conduct not just a general home inspection but also other inspection, such as a termite inspection, radon inspection, stucco inspection, pool inspection, septic tank inspection, structural inspection, and any other inspections or tests that are applicable to the home you are purchasing. While home inspections can cost anywhere between $500 to $1,000 or more, when all is said and done, it’s the best money you will spend to protect yourself and your investment.
Finding out about potentially costly home defects, deferred maintenance, or safety and code issues can save you thousands and thousands of dollars or simply help you to plan ahead for repairs needed – whether you move forward with the purchase or decide to terminate and find another home. Spending $500 to $1000 during the due diligence period might be the smartest money you ever spend.
