So, at this point, we have talked about pre-qualifications, viewing homes, and making an offer. Once your offer is accepted, it is now time to hire a home inspector for a home inspection. Here are a few things to remember when choosing a home inspector.
First, choose someone who is professional, available, and knowledgeable. Also, make sure you feel comfortable with the home inspector. You will have questions, and you must feel comfortable approaching them with any questions.
Another thing to keep in mind is that when you schedule a home inspection, be sure that you are available. The home inspector may point things out that are not on the report. Some of the information may be tips and suggestions to you as a new homeowner, because, let’s say something needs to be repaired; you will visualize what that looks like.
Also, don’t panic when you finish the home inspection. The inspector will give you a lot of material to go over with the real estate agent that will include everything potentially wrong with the house now and everything that can go wrong in the future. We suggest going over it and choose what is important to you. Have a list of repairs and credit prepared for the seller. Small updates are okay to complete on your own. As a homeowner, you will be doing a lot of that by yourself.
