A home inspection will check the condition and operability of the home. It is important to find a qualified and experienced inspector who will not only inspect the property for current problems but will also advise you of potential future hazards. Your Pinnacle agent can help you find a reputable home inspector locally. A home inspection will generally cost between $300 and $500, depending on the property type and size. If the inspection report shows items which need to be repaired you can ask the seller to make repairs, or you can choose to proceed and fix after closing. If there are major issues you can cancel the purchase agreement and walk away from the home usually without any penalties.
If you are purchasing a home “as/is” the inspection will provide a basis for what you will need to take care of after closing.
*Pinnacle Hint* Be present for the inspection if you are here during the buying process! You can follow the inspector and ask any questions regarding the condition of the home while he is performing the analysis.
