Should you obtain a home inspection when you find a house you like? Understanding what services a professional home inspector provides is the key to answering this issue. A home inspector is a professional who is trained to examine every part of a property. A house inspection contingency should always be included in your offer. If the inspection reveals issues, you can use the report and repair estimates to pressure the seller to rectify them, give you a lower price, or cancel the contract. If required. Home inspectors look at the heating, electrical, and plumbing systems, as well as the general interior and exterior, structural issues, and the roof and foundation. Always request a written report and, if applicable, written estimates. An inspector, like any other professional, should have references and a long track record of accomplishments. Your realtor can supply you with a list of names that they suggest. I wish you well in your search for the home of your dreams.
