As a buyer, you are entitled to know exactly what you are getting. Don't take for granted what you see and what the
seller or the listing agent tells you. A professional home inspection is something you MUST do, whether you are
buying an existing home or a new one. An inspection is an opportunity to have an expert look closely at the property
you are considering purchasing and getting both an oral and written opinion as to its condition.
Beforehand, make sure the report will be done by a professional organization, such as a local trade organization or a
national trade organization such as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspection). Not only should you never skip an
inspection, but also you should go along with the inspector during inspection. This gives you a chance to ask
questions about the property and get answers that are not biased. In addition, the oral comments are typically more
revealing and detailed than what you will find on the written report. Once the inspection is complete, review the
inspection report carefully.
You have to demand an inspection when you present your offer. It must be written in as a contingency; if you do not
approve the inspection report, then you don't buy. Most real estate contracts automatically provide an inspection
