What a Home Inspection May Not Tell You
You can’t always tell at first glance if the home you are about to buy has hidden repair issues. This is why your Realtor will recommend hiring a certified home inspector to do a thorough check on the structure and major systems of the home before you prepare to close on any home.
The average home inspection will cost you about $300 - $400 and can save you thousands in surprise repairs. But, you should know there are some things that the home inspector may not cover.
While your home inspection is a valuable tool for determining repair issues and uncovering major concerns with the structure or systems – it does cover more than 1,000 key aspects of the property- it does not include absolutely everything. It is important to hire a qualified home inspector and if you have concerns, consider further examination of any specific areas not included in a typical home inspection.
