Why Should Home Inspections Be Done?

To prevent making a purchase that will not be useful for you, buyers often insist on carrying out an inspection of the home by a professional inspection company. Nowadays, sellers are seeing a significant rise in the amount of offers they are getting every day. This makes buyers reluctant to insist on carrying out an inspection, as it could reduce the chances of them getting the home. However, how safe is it to ignore the inspection? Though it will have short term benefits, but if it is observed over a long period of time, then what will be more beneficial?

If a seller gets more than one offer in a day and out of those, one requires him to get an inspection carried out, then it is obvious that the seller will prefer the offer that does not need him to carry out an inspection, as the cost factor increases and so does the work load. So, the buyers are often put in a competitive disadvantage when they insist on an inspection to be done. The question to be asked is can you really afford to buy a house that has a large number of glaring deficiencies, which could have been identified with a simple inspection? Are the costs that will be required to fix the problem comparable to the cost of the inspection? What happens if you buy the house and find out that it will require significant repairs before the house becomes worthy to live in?

A simple solution to this situation is to carry out an inspection that will be for informational purposes only. In this way, you can ensure that the settlement of the purchase will be done only after the inspection has been carried out and depending on its findings. You can even put a clause in the contract, which states that in case of any repairs being found, the seller will need to make appropriate repairs and if not, then the entire deal can be removed, in case the damages are quite severe. This will help identify major problems in the property and allow proper chances for you to fix them.

At times, instead of a formal inspection by a paid professional, you can also carry out something known as a sub-rosa inspection. This means that you can take along a friend of yours, who has relevant experience in the construction or engineering field, when you go to see the home. The aim of this experiment is to have him look out for any major deficiencies that can be known as deal breakers.

If your friend has not noticed any signs of severe damage, then you can begin writing up a contract without any contingencies. The good thing about such contracts is that sellers love to sign them. With such a contract, it is more likely for you to get the house you want. There is no one way when it comes to getting inspections done. If you feel that the competition is not so hot, then you can insist on an inspection. However, if you feel that the competition is severe, then you can carry out an informal inspection that will help you get an idea about the house.
