Home Buyer Inspection Good Idea

(Portland, OR USA)

Home Buyer Inspection - A Good Idea: A home buyer inspection is definitely not throwing away money in most cases. When you are buying an older home that obviously needs repairs, it gives you a good idea of the resources you are going to need to repair it. Whether it is time or money you will be putting into it, it's important to have that knowledge so that you can make an informed decision.

In fact, this is a good rule of thumb for any house with a previous owner. If the house has problems, these problems can be used to negotiate the price of the property down, or even to have the seller fix the problems before you close.

Armed with your home buyer inspection, you know what has to be repaired in your new home. You can make decisions regarding your new budget. Especially for first time home buyers, this is an indispensable asset.

I would recommend anyone buying home get a home buyer inspection. The investment is well worth it. And even if there is nothing wrong with your possible future home, you will have the peace of mind of having that knowledge.
