As soon as that offer is accepted, buyers can truly start to imagine what it will be like when their loan closes and they can turn the key to their new life in their new home. Throughout the buying process, there are several steps that have to be taken before move in day. One of the biggest hurdles during this process is the home inspection. JMark Inspections is here to talk about the many reasons that we recommend buyers are present during their home inspection.
Keep the Home Inspectors Honest
The cost of the home inspection during the buying process is paid for by the buyer. These inspections should last anywhere from two to four hours depending on the size of the house and the property. When you are paying for a home inspection, you want to know that you are getting your money’s worth. You want to know that your inspector didn’t rush through the process and did a thorough job as he/she combed through every aspect of the home in the home inspection. When buyers are present, the buyer will be able to shadow the inspector.
Explanation of Issues & Fixes During a Home Inspection
Every time an inspection is completed, your inspector will write a detailed report of all the findings of the inspection. When you are present, you are able to hear about all of these findings directly from the inspector. Sometimes, when reading reports, findings may sound more serious than they actually are. That confusion can be cleared up with a buyer present.
During the Home Inspection, Buyers Can Ask Good Questions
Walking through your property with a fine toothed comb for the first time is sure to bring on several questions. You will be looking at all the major systems of your home and this is the perfect time to ask the inspector any questions that you may have. You may have questions about the lifespan of the roof on your home, or questions about some of the appliances in the house. While the inspector can’t guarantee that a roof will last a certain amount of time, but they can give you their professional opinion as they do nothing but look at the quality of homes day in and day out.
Buyers Can Learn the Ins & Outs of the Property During the Home Buying Process
This is a great opportunity for buyers to become familiar with the home they are getting ready to buy. What’s better than your own personal tour guide that explains every single detail about your new home? When you have the chance to comb through the home, you can truly decide whether it is a good fit for you or not.
