Owning a home requires upkeep including regular maintenance and repairs when things go wrong or stop operating correctly. It can be a bit scary after you move into your first home and realize the responsibility you have just acquired.

Although buyers have the right to ask specific inspection items to be taken care of, sellers in Colorado Springs can refuse to make the repairs and terminate the contract.
Let's face it, when you buy a home, it's likely going to need some sort of repair. Even new homes are not perfect!

Home ownership is a wonderful thing but it is important for buyers to be realistic and understand homes do require work
