Buying a home can be stressful for many people. Okay, okay…most people. There are so many things to consider and often decisions are made under pressure. You want and need to make good choices.
In our experience, you want a home in the right neighborhood (whatever that means to you) and you want it to be near the best schools, a great church, and perhaps a shopping center. You also want a home that makes you feel…well…at home. With the help of a good REALTOR® and a little research, these are all things you can typically resolve on your own.
If you are like most home buyers, the house you purchase will be your home for quite some time. Before you go to closing, you need to know whether it is structurally sound, has a good roof, has plumbing issues, or has mold growing in the crawlspace. These are just a few of the things a good home inspector, like 1st Choice Home Inspections, can determine for you.
A home inspector may save you a bundle by helping you avoid costly mistakes. No one wants to buy a home and then find out the HVAC system doesn’t work properly, or that the damper in the fireplace is broken. Don’t purchase a home without having it inspected first!
