home: Home Inspections When Buying A Home - 01/16/14 10:14 PM
Home Inspections An offer to buy a home in #Winchester #Virginia can include a “subject to” clause that is dependent on a home inspection. Not all buyers elect to include this clause because they may be purchasing a new home that is already under warranty, they may know enough about homes and building that the inspection is unnecessary, or they may want to save money.  I alway suggest a predrywall inspection and a final home inspection prior to settlement.

In urban and suburban areas where municipal water supplies are the norm, water quality is consistent from one home to the next. In more rural areas, however, water supplies must be carefully assessed to be sure they meet standards of healthfulness and abundance     year-round.
