Home Inspections are very important.  Regardless of the type of transaction, the inspection hopefully will highlight any issues with the property that is not obvious to the untrained eyes.  Thanks to Michael Jacobs for this excellent post

Pasadena CA The Importance of a Home Inspection No Matter What

The Importance of a Home Inspection - No Matter What


In Pasadena and throughout California - our purchase agreements state that all properties are sold in “As Is” condition.   Not just bank owned properties.   Not only short sale properties.   All properties sold in the state of California are sold in “as is” condition.  Big or small. Single family home or a condo.  This underscores the importance of a home inspection in Pasadena and throughout California - no matter what.

Does this frighten home buyers in Pasadena?   It shouldn’t.   Why not?

There is a physical inspection investigation period that is agreed upon by you as the buyer and the seller.   Do not give up your opportunity to investigate and inspect the property.   Contact a professional inspector(your Realtor can help you with at least three recommendations) or you can ask others you know for their recommendations or an inspector you have used in the past -- keeping in mind - it should be a professional inspector.   You may also want to utilize the services of other professional inspectors and tradespeople including foundation, roof, structural systems, geologists and more.  Not to belabor the point - but the importance of a home inspection is of the utmost importance - no matter what.

In Pasadena, California and in some other cities there is a city inspection process as well.    It is a requirement within the city and must be resolved as a condition of the sale - who pays for it is up for negotiation(inspection typically paid by the seller).    

Again - An “as is” home sale does not negate the importance of a home matter what.

This is one in an occasional series of blog posts about As Is sales and the importance of inspections.   For further information regarding the subject or any other real estate related matter including buying or selling property in Pasadena and throughout the San Gabriel Valley and the adjacent Northeast Foothill communities within the city of Los Angeles contact Michael Jacobs at 818.516.4393 cell or or www.camoves/com/michael.jacobs

Inspections are the very basic requirement for most buyers and not having one should be something that is heavily gone over before proceeding!!!  We do lots of preinspections here when there are multiple offers.

I absolutely agree.  No excuse to ever buy a home without an inspection - but incredible to me that so many persons are still doing this.

Murphy's Law dictates that whomever doesn't have a home inspection will have a problem.

We are huge advocates of Home inspection importance around here !
