When you purchase a new home in San Jose, you can easily get overwhelmed by all the expenses. From renting a moving truck to electric or gas hookup, these expenses seem small in comparison to your home’s price tag, but they can add up quickly. Like many home buyers, you may be looking for ways to cut costs. No matter what you do, don’t skip your home inspection just to save a few hundred dollars.
A home inspection is an important part of the home-buying process and protects you as you invest in real estate. By not getting an inspection, you may save a bit of money now, but you open yourself up to larger costs down the road. For example, say that the home you’re buying has a faulty HVAC system. You and your realtor didn’t catch it during your walk through, so you buy the home without a home inspection. Now, instead of paying a few hundred dollars for the inspection, you have to pay thousands of dollars to fix the HVAC.
At Wall 2 Wall Property Inspections of San Jose, CA, we give our customers a thorough report of a property’s main structures and systems, as well as any other problem areas we notice throughout the home. You can take our report and then make a decision whether to ask the seller for repairs, walk away from the contract, or proceed with the purchase as planned.
The best real estate decision is an informed one, and the home inspection is an important part of that process. You may even decide to add on a mold inspection or radon testing to be extra thorough.
