Should I Have My HUD Home Inpsected?
Every Sunday we feature HUD Homes. Some weeks it will be information about purchasing HUD homes (see the links at the end of this post). Other weeks we will feature available HUD homes in Douglas and the surrounding counties.
This week we are answering a common HUD question. Should I have my HUD home inspected?
Regardless of the type of house you are purchasing ~ new construction, traditional re-sale (previously owned home), bank-owned foreclosure, short sale or HUD home ~ we strongly recommened a home inspection. Your home inspector will check the home top to bottom, inside and out. He or she will check the main systems ~ electrical, plumbing, heat and air conditioning. The purpose of a home inspection is to be aware of the condition of the home you are purchasing. It does not guarantee that any repairs or replacements will be made.
Once potential issues have been identified, it is up to the buyer (YOU) to make a decision. Do you want the issues addressed by the seller? Are you willing to continue the purchase of the house in "As-Is" condition? Do you want to terminate the purchase of the house? Of course, you can consult with your Realtor to assist with this decision, but the bottom line decision is that of the buyer (YOU).
Should I have my HUD home inspected? Yes. We strongly recommend a home inspection for EVERY home purchase.
(HUD is the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.)
