Property Inspection & Other Necessary Steps

By: Liz Bacall

Everyone has heard horror stories about home purchases that turned sour after the new owners moved in and discovered a few new things about their purchase. This is a heartbreaking ordeal to have to go through so it pays to educate yourself on the necessary steps of a home purchase before you jump in with both feet. Smart buyers know there is a real step-by-step process that has to be observed in order to ensure that they are getting the best deal possible and do not end up with an expensive problem on their hands.

One of the best ways around this problem is to network with your realtor during every step of the process, make sure they keep you informed about everything that is happening with your offer.

This will also help you in learning about the actual transaction that is taking place. One of the most important steps of the sale process is the inspection. Always be sure to have the home inspected by a certified and independent inspector. Be wary of sellers or listing agents who downplay the necessity of the home inspection, they might be trying to hide something. Home inspections can turn up important safety concerns such as faulty wiring, insufficient insulation or a faulty foundation and health concerns such as mold.

The last thing you want is to skip a step to save time or money and end up with regrets at the end of the process. Remember, this is going to be a home for you and your family, and you deserve the best. Why spend all the time and money and not be thorough? Protect your family and your investment. You will thank yourself later!
