Why You Need a Home Inspection?

Real Estate Agent with Re/Max 10 New Lenox Illinois

Buying a home is a big decision.


After my Buyer has gotten pre-approved for their mortgage financing with Loan Officer Vincent Redd, I have found my buyer the perfect home, they love the neighborhood, the schools, and the shopping that’s close. However, we need to make sure they don’t overlook a critical part of the home purchase: the home inspection.


The physical checkup of the home is a wise investment to ensure the home is in good shape.

What does the home inspection provide?

It provides an “Out”- A quality home inspection can uncover critical info about the homes condition. Knowing if any major repairs or maintenance issues are present is invaluable information for a buyer to decide if this really their ‘dream home”.

  • Safety- The presence of radon, mold, carbon monoxide, and even lead paint are serious items that a seasoned home inspector will find if they are present.
  • Negotiating Tool- As a buyer’s agent when issues  arise I can gain ‘leverage’ for my buyer when negotiating for them. Do they need closing cost credits? Home inspection issues may mean they can get them.
  • Insurance- It is important to know that there are certain property repairs that an insurance company may have issue with before they insure it. Knowing this upfront can avoid costly insurance deductibles/out of pocket expenses later.
  • Deal Breakers- Every buyer is different. There may be certain things a home inspector finds that may be something that prompts my buyer to walk away from a home.  A home inspection will make sure my buyer has all the information they need to make an informed decision to move forward with the purchase.

The inner workings of a home are not normally exposed during the appraisal process. A quality home inspection will give a buyer peace of mind regarding their home purchase.
