The Federal Citizen Information Center (FCIC) recommends hiring a home inspector before deciding to purchase your home. Purchasing a home is an important decision, one that will be with you for multiple years. Therefore, you need to know the condition of the property to avoid any costly issues and repairs. You would not want to purchase a car from a private owner without having a mechanic check it out, why would you purchase a home on the word of the owner who is trying to get rid of it or an agent that does not specialize in home inspection?
A qualified home inspector will make an unbiased, expert evaluation of the true condition of the Holden Beach real estate property. They will inspect the structure, construction, mechanical systems (i.e. heating, cooling, electrical, plumbing, etc.), identify what should be repaired or replaced, and the remaining life of such systems.
The inspector will not provide you with an appraisal just a written statement of the homes condition.
Try to find an inspector that is knowledgeable in the market that your property of interest is located. Ask your Holden Beach real estate agent about finding a qualified home inspector.
