Should I Waive My Home Inspection?
Between the pandemic and the red hot housing market, I see some buyers waiving the home inspection in an attempt to jump ahead of the competition.
Which begs the question: Is this ever a smart idea? No, nope, uh-uh, never, don’t even think about it, K?
You may think the home is in perfect shape, but some of the costliest problems are difficult to spot: leaks, termite damage, foundation issues, poor ventilation, faulty wiring, and drippy appliances.
A home inspection gives you the chance (before you sign on the dotted line) to have a professional inspector see if there are any problems that need to be addressed, replaced, or fixed.
When it’s over, you’ll have an accurate assessment of what you’re walking into when you buy so you can avoid shelling out money say, for a new roof cause you didn’t know it was leaky.
What was your experience like with your latest home inspection?
