This is great advice for anyone purchasing a home inMurrieta,Temecula or any part of Riverside County.
Via Doug Rogers:
Buying a home is the largest investments most families will make. As such, I recommend anyone looking to buy a home in Pineville Louisiana should pay for a professional home inspection. With the joy of home shopping comes the onslaught of bills. Between deposits, loan locking, lease termination fees, etc... it seems everyone wants some of the Pineville home buyer's money.
The natural tendency then is to cut corners. Frankly that 300-350 dollars for the home inspection creates a pretty tempting target. But let's examine why EVERY Pineville home buyer should get a home inspection.
1) Buyers fall in love with houses, home inspectors do not-- It has been my experience that buyers typically fall in love with the home they purchase. This is especially true of first timers. Think back to high school, did you make sound decisions while experiencing puppy love? Me either...
2) A Professional Home Inspector can find stuff rookies miss-- A recent Pineville buyer of mine brought his buddy over to inspect his home. The dude gave the house a 100% passing score. After begging the buyer they agreed to fund a professional home inspection. The inspector found 1,500 bucks worth of electrical repairs. Did I mention their "buddy" was an auto mechanic??
3) The Home Inspector is not your uncle-- Family mean well (most of the time). But Uncle George does not have the wealth of experience or the cool tools of the professional home inspector. Can your Uncle see moisture behind walls? I didn't think so!
4) A Home Inspector will produce an inspection report-- This report gives your Pineville agent ammunition when negotiating repairs. It's one thing to claim the roof is bad, it's another to produce pictures of the hail damage.
Yes, people buying a home in Pineville Louisiana need to watch their money. And in my opinion, the best way to guard the bank is with a professional home inspection!
