Why An Inspection?

Why you should get an Inspection

Whether you are buying or selling a home, you should have a professional home inspection performed.

A home inspection will look at the systems that make up the building such as:

  • Structural elements, foundation, framing etc
  • Plumbing systems
  • Roofing
  • Electrical systems
  • Cosmetic condition, paint, siding etc

Also consider a pest inspection to look for wood destroying insects and a well & septic inspection to make sure everything is working properly.

If you are buying a home, you need to know exactly what you are getting. A inspection, performed by a professional inspector, will reveal any hidden problems with the home so that they may be addressed BEFORE the transaction is closed. You should require an inspection at the time you make a formal offer. Make sure the contract has an inspection contingency. Then, hire your own inspector and pay close attention to the inspection report. If you aren’t comfortable with the findings you can re-negotiate the contract.

Other types of inspection you should strongly consider are:

1. Well & Septic Inspections – very important to make sure your water is safe to drink and your toilet isn’t going to take a crap on you!

2. Pest Inspections – It could be very costly if something starts buggin’ you!

Buying and Financing Rental Property 2022 Event

July 2022 Lunch & Learn Event and Webinar for Realtors and Investors

Working with home buyers searching for a new primary residence is a totally different game compared to working with investors and rental property.  Sure, there are similarities, but what want-to-be home owners care about is different than what an investor cares about.  Frankly, for an investor, it’s all about the money and it should be.  When someone purchases a rental property they are essentially running a business.  If we can help them run a successful business and turn a profit they will likely come back and buy more properties.

There are lots of want-to-be investors out there and the hardest part is getting started.  We are going to help unravel the maze.  We will also look at long term planning.  Often just knowing what needs to happen to acquire the next property and the next one after that is one of the keys to success.  Owning rental property can be a great way to build wealth and we are here to help.
