Now as your real estate agent or attorney has
advised, it is important to have a professional,
completely impartial inspection as soon as possible.
Then if repairs are indicated, they can be made well
ahead of time avoiding stressful and sometimes
costly delays in the closing.
All parties to the real estate transaction benefit
by a professional unbiased inspection. It
determines the physical condition of the property,
as opposed to just the appraisal or market value of
the property. No prudent person wants to purchase a
home and find out later it has significant and
costly defects. An impartial inspection also
protects the seller and the Realtor against the
possibility of problems surfacing which could
prevent the sale or cause other difficulties later.
An inspection report does not pass or fail a home.
The report simply describes the condition and
indicates items which may need repair or
replacement. It is a confidential report given to
you solely for your use.

professional inspections for homes older than five
years, but it is important to know the home youíre
buying even if it is new.
