Welcome New Home Owner!
The process of buying a home is not as obvious as it may seem. There are lots of things that you must know before you make your decision. No matter the size of the home, we want to educate you on your new purchase. You will need an experienced certified home inspector to help you to know the home you will be buying. Making this transaction a value to you is important to our success. I will make sure that you understand the condition of your prospective home before I leave. Most of what your inspection will reveal will be maintenance recommendations and minor imperfections. These are valuable to know about. We will be looking froward to working with you as a new home buyer.

The home inspection issues that really matter will fall into four categories
1. Major defects: An example of this would be structural failure.
2. Conditions that usually lead to major defects, such as a small roof flashing leak.
3. Things that may hinder your ability to finance, legally occupy, or insure the home.
4. Safety hazards, such as an exposed, live buss bar at the main electric panel.
Most home sellers are honest and are often surprised to learn of defects uncovered during an inspection. Realize that sellers are under no obligation to repair everything mentioned in the report. Because no home is perfect, it is important as a buyer to keep things in perspective. It is not customary to demand that a seller address deferred maintenance or conditions already listed on the seller's disclosure statements. Many times the home owner has already decided whether to repair an item or not prior to your showing. But you can ask for money to be taken off the selling price so you can do the repairs that might be needed.
