Under the inspection repair and maintenance section of your home purchase contract, a seller has some limited responsibilities to the buyer to warrant certain items and/or systems in the home. While your agent may be representing you as a buyer, they are in no way qualified to determine the condition on these items and/or systems. As the buyer, you need to do your due diligence during the time alotted in your contract.
For that reason, I strongly recommend to all of my customers buying property to employ the services of a professional Licensed Home Inspector to make these determinations.
In my experience as a Realtor, the home inspector that you hire will always find something in the home that you are purchasing. It could be a small issue or a big one. It's just wise for you to know what you're getting into when buying a home. If you decide to move forward with the purchase, you could look at it as a way of getting your "honey do list" together to be addressed after closing, or putting aside the funds to hire a professional.
The following are some of the home inspectors in the Tampa area. You may refer to the local Yellow Pages and internet for more.
Also, I recommend your considering the purchase of a home warranty.
Feel free to call me to discuss the home purchase process. I'm here to assist you in each step of the process and will assist you to assist you in the details that must be handled to ensure that you have a home buying experience.
Please call me if there is anything that I can do to help,
