Yes, homebuying can be a daunting task, especially in this market! So many questions… Is the roof in good condition? Was it professionally installed? What about the plumbing, electrical, heating, and air conditioning? Are they in good working order?
The market is so competitive, should you waive the inspections? If you make it contingent upon inspections, you could lose the sale. And aren’t inspections pricey? Well, not as expensive as buying a home that has problems that could have been discovered in a professional inspection. So, what should you do? Unless you are trained in construction, you should have the inspection. Even if you are well versed in buying property, an independent professional opinion can give you peace of mind and help you avoid huge problems down the road.
Now that interest rates have been climbing, even if a property has multiple offers, you can still make your offer attractive without having to give up the inspections. Call me to find out how you can find the right home and succeed in making it your own, without compromising your peace of mind.
