A basic home inspection helps you to avoid the unknown when purchasing a property. Buying a property, before obtaining a home inspection, can literally result in buying a property for more than it’s worth. Once a property is purchased, it is yours…problems and all. A basic home inspection helps you to avoid those problems. A home inspection can also help you to negotiate a price that can accommodate any costs and expenses involved with any defects you may consider serious. It may even help you to point out defects and negotiate the correction of those defects, with the seller, before you purchase the property.
