Why you should get an inspection when buying a foreclosure home......
When you are putting an offer on a foreclosure home, you should definitely get your inspections done. Whether this is an investment property or a home you plan to make your own....it's better to know what potential problems you may have to correct on your own.
Most foreclosure homes are as-is sales. Which means you are purchasing the house in whatever condition it is in. There are no guarantees expressed or implied from the seller. Most of the time, it is up to the buyer to do their homework and get the inspections done.
What you may not know is that fungus dry rot , when not taken care of, can spread and continue to cause additional damage if the problem is not corrected. What can start out as a minor repair can manifest into a major construction project.
The cost of a pest inspection is very low, considering the valuable information it gives you.
