90 Days to Homeowner – Week 9

Are you ready for another installment in the 90 Day to Homeowner Challenge? 

For Week 9 of the Challenge, grab a cup of coffee, lean in real close, and let’s chat about all things…wait for it…home inspection!  

(Cause I mean, do you really have to spend several hundred dollars on a home inspection?) 

The answer is yes…a thousand times YES! Here’s why: 

  1. You may think your home is in perfect shape, but some of the costliest problems are difficult to spot: leaks, termite damage, foundation issues, poor ventilation, faulty wiring, and drippy appliances.
  2. A home inspection gives you the chance (before you sign on the dotted line) to have a professional inspector see if there are any problems that need to be addressed, replaced, or fixed.
  3. When it’s all said and done, you’ll have an accurate picture of what you’re walking into when you buy. Wouldn’t you hate shelling out money set aside for new furniture on a new roof cause you didn’t know it was leaky? Yeah…me too.
Plan to pay between $200 and $600 for a home inspection—and while you won’t get it back if the sale falls through, it’s a safety measure we recommend to all our buyers.

Next week, we’ll chat about getting prepared for closing day!

In the meantime, send us a message if you’re ready to take the next step towards buying. We’re here to help every step of the way!
