Why Do you NEED a Home Inspection when Buying a HOME??

 A home inspection gives the buyer more detailed information about the overall condition of the home prior to purchase. In a home inspection, a qualified inspector takes an in-depth, unbiased look at your potential new home to:

Evaluate the physical condition: structure, construction, and mechanical systems; Identify items that need to be repaired or replaced; and estimate the remaining useful life of the major systems, equipment, structure, and finishes.

You Must Ask for a Home Inspection

A home inspection will only occur if you arrange for one. The inspection period in Arizona is within the first ten days. Decide early. You may be able to make your contract contingent on the results of the inspection.

Appraisals are Different from Home Inspections

An appraisal is different from a home inspection and does not replace a home inspection. Appraisals estimate the value of the property for lenders. 

An appraisal is required to ensure the property is marketable. 

Home inspections evaluate the condition of the home for buyers.

Protect yourself when buying inspect what you believe is important, and then go further with a specialized contractor in any area of concern. Take the time you have to do your due diligence and make sure nothing creeps up later in the contract. 

Offering support during the process of inspections, and repairs are just a fraction of what I offer my clients. IF you would like more information on buying a home in Arizona please reach out to set up an appointment today.
