If you are in the process of buying a home, you may be wondering if it is worth it to have a professional home inspection. Most real estate agents and home buying experts will recommend a home inspection for two big reasons. One, to uncover possible safety hazards, and two, to find maintenance issues that may need attention.
A home inspection can alert you to major repairs that are needed in or around the home. You may choose to go ahead and buy the home, renegotiate the purchase price, or cancel the deal and continue in your search.
Here are just two of the most expensive home repairs:
Problems with the structural foundation of the home that are causing leaks to the basement or other areas are difficult to fix. There may be flaws with new construction which cause water to get in, or over time walls may have cracked and settled in older homes. A cracked foundation can cost $10,000 or more to correct.
Timber beams that support a home, called stumps, may need to be replaced if they are rotted or defective. One indication that something is not right is if there is a lot of vibration when walking across the main floor. This is a costly repair that if not done correctly could adversely affect the home’s leveling.
