The journey to home ownership is intense. The search, the offer, the negotiations and the paperwork. It might be tempting to skip out on the home inspection, but that would be a major misstep on your part.
The buyer is responsible for paying for the home inspection, and depending on the size of the home, you’ll need to fork over about $300 to $500 to a home inspector of your choosing. While that feels like one other expense you don’t need when trying to buy a house, a home inspection is the one way to really ensure everything in the house is functioning.
Here are five reasons to invest in a home inspection:
A good home inspection will help you understand exactly what you are about to acquire, so picking a quality inspector and paying a few hundred dollars is worth the effort and expense. A home is going to be your most expensive investment, so do your homework, get the report and run from the “money pit” if your report advises.
