Whether you’re a homeowner looking for the next perfect place for your family or an investor trying to make a deal happen, purchasing a property is a big decision.
With recent events, there are all sorts of things going on in Houston, including multiple instances flooding.
What long-term or hidden issues can occur with a home after it’s gone through hurricanes and flooding?
It would be near impossible to determine hidden issues with homes if you don’t know where to look or have the tools to literally since inside walls.
Know exactly what you’re paying for
Getting a home inspection might seem like one of those unnecessary expenses for a home.
But what if there was something wrong with the structure that was so significant that it puts you in the hole several thousands of dollars more than you’d anticipating with the deal?
Regardless of whether it’s a new construction or an existing house, getting the property inspected assures you (and your lender) that the home is structurally sound and you can move forward knowing that you’re safe.
Additionally, if you’re purchasing an existing home from a seller, you want to be sure that the foundation, roof, structure, and all components of the home are as they say they are.
Sometimes people aren’t telling you everything about the house. And sometimes they really don’t know.
You don’t want to be stuck paying out of pocket for something that was supposed to have been in great condition to begin with.
Put your trust in someone that knows how to identify issues
You may be well versed in taking care of your home.
So, is it worth hiring a professional?
Honestly, the answer may be no…
…until it’s yes.
But by that time, it’s too late. You’ve already experienced what happens when you didn’t get it checked out before-hand.
You don’t want to get stuck with a massive bill that you weren’t expecting.
Especially if it’s something the seller should have had repaired.
Or maybe they claimed they did have it repaired, and you didn’t have it inspected afterwards to ensure they did it correctly.
That’s why re-inspections are important. Sometimes sellers just need to get the house sold they’ll cut corners.
Sometimes their contractors simply make mistakes.
And if they do, it shouldn’t become your mistake as well.
Let us take care of it, so that you don’t have to.
