Q. Do I have to attend the inspection?
We strongly recommend you attend the inspection. You can ask questions directly as you learn about the condition of the home. You can learn how its systems work and how to maintain them. It will be the best 2 hours you could spend learning about your new home. You will also find the written report much easier to understand if you’ve walked through the home with your Inspector.
Q. What if the report reveals problems?
All homes have strengths and weaknesses. If your Inspector identifies a condition that needs attention, this may become a point for negotiation.
Your Realtor will be Your greatest asset in this process.
Q. If the house is in good condition…did I really need an inspection?
Definitely. Now you know the condition of your home. After the inspection, you will probably know more about the property than the previous owner.
