Pre-purchase Home Inspection Using A Home Inspection Checklist
Whenever you run across a home that you really like and
you're thinking about buying, it wouldn't be a bad idea to ask the
homeowners if they've had the house inspected. If they have had the
house inspected, ask to see the home inspection report.
Now this is where things get tricky, was the home inspector a friend of theirs? You're going to find this hard to believe, but every once in a while, yeah that's right every once in a while the home seller could be hiding something. For the most part, most people are honest and sincere, but those aren't the people we need to worry about.
For those people who aren't very honest, the home inspection report that you're looking at, might not have everything in it. That's why most home buyers hire their own home inspector to do an additional home inspection.
Now what if I could tell you a way where you could save about $380, by using a home inspection checklist, that's right, now I got your attention. Most home inspectors charge between 300 and $600 for a home inspector to provide you with a home inspection report.
You could use home inspection checklists on every single house that you've visited, without hiring a home inspector. You could actually do your own home inspections and if you didn't feel comfortable and you found a home that you really liked, use the home inspection checklists and then hire a home inspector and compare notes.
You can have the best of both worlds.
