Buying a home is a purchase every individual and family wants to make. But buyer’s should realize that their first home may not be the home there are going to live in forever. A first home is just that-a first home.
You like what you see, so where do you sign? Not so fast. Failing to get a home inspection isn’t just foolish, it can be financially crippling.
Always, always, always get a home inspection. Protect yourself you have no idea what the crack in the foundation can mean, or water in the basement and so on and so on.
While “location, location, location” is important many people forget to look at the big picture. Get an aerial view, just plug into Google search and see how close the home is to waterways, open spaces….If you find there is a landfill a couple miles away that may be something you want to know. In some areas you may have a freeway behind your home that may not be visible.
