Are you a believer in love at first sight? Sometimes when viewing a home, we get so caught up in the pretty wrapping that we forget to look inside to see what makes the home. From the moment you walked through the front door, you knew it had to be yours. The open concept plan, modern kitchen and finished basement were exactly what you’ve been dreaming of and may have been enough to make you overlook the leaking faucet in the bathroom and strange smell coming from the basement.
It is a classic example of never judging a book by its cover, and can be easily solved with a home inspection. When buyers put in an offer, there is the option to insert a home inspection clause. The home inspector will do a visual inspection of the structure and components of the home to ensure everything is performing correctly and is in safe working condition. At the end of the inspection, they will hand the potential homebuyer a report pointing out any issues in the home.
It is always recommended to do a home inspection in the home that you are interested in purchasing. This can potentially save you thousands of dollars and unwanted stress.
