Smart, responsible Buyers get a home inspection. The last Buyer I know, that did not get a home inspection, ended up finding out that the home they purchased had toxic “Chinese Drywall.” Needless to say, that didn’t end up well. The reason they didn’t get a home inspection was they, “didn’t have the money.” Oh, no – they weren’t my client!
When you buy a home with me – you’ll get a home inspection. Here are a number reasons why to have one done: http://goo.gl/kJpBs
I believe that it actually SAVES you money. A home inspector is hired to find defects in the home. Believe me, even the best looking homes have blemishes – and you will want to know. You owe it to yourself to work with a reputable agent that has the most experienced, professional, and knowledgeable inspectors in the business on speed dial. It is vitally important that you have an inspection to determine the overall condition of the home. Often times, the inspection is just your 2nd time through and you really have a chance to look closely at the home and use the 2-3 hours to confirm your initial thoughts of why you wrote the offer in the first place.
New Orleans’ area homes are especially unique due to the age of our city. When you consider the different eras of construction, architectural style and sign, topography, and varying levels of condition – you have to find out as much as possible about what will probably be the greatest investment of your life.
You should feel comfortable with and confident in the agent you hire. A good REALTOR will know a home inspector to see you through what could be a stressful part of the home-purchase process. Don’t leave it to chance.
