We Highly Recommend an Inspection
Let's talk about the next step once we have a fully executed contract signed by all parties.
- Depending on the type of financing you choose, there should be either 2 or 3 separate inspections on the home you want to purchase.
- The first should be your own personal inspection, and the second should be a professional inspector that is licensed in the State of Texas. Should you select a government loan [FHA or VA], the third inspection should come at the time of the appraisal, which to some degree amounts to a "mini-inspection".
- Do not, however, rely on this appraisal as your only inspection of the property!
- We cannot emphasize enough the value and necessity of an extensive home inspection by a licensed real estate inspector. It saves you money long-term!
- Inspections are designed to disclose defects in the property that could materially affect its safety, livability, or resale value. They are not designed to disclose cosmetic deficiencies [example, an interior wall that needs paint touch up].
- You will need to determine on your own those types of cosmetic items that will need attention: don't expect an inspection to reveal them to you.
- EVEN IF YOU ARE BUYING A NEW HOME, GET AN INDEPENDENT INSPECTION.
