Welcome to the Homes On The Sunshine Coast Blog
Home inspections are a very important part of the home sale and purchase process. Let's talk about it from both the sellers perspective and the buyers perspective.
When you are a seller, your goal is to sell your home and by the end of the process have the most money possible into your pocket. One of the proactive actions you can take as a seller is to get a home inspection done now so that you know exactly what shape your home is in and learn what upgrades or fixes if any need to be done. If you don't do it, the buyer will, and any problems that arise from the inspection become a bargaining chip on the final price of the sale. In our opinion, you are better off to know what you are dealing with up front and take care of any problems, rather than wait for surprises when your buyer does the inspection. Often a few dollars invested now put your further ahead in the long run.
As a buyer, it is very important for you to have a home inspection done before completing your agreement to purchase. Buying a home is typically the largest investment that people make and therefore a very important one. You need to know if there are any issues with the home that need to be taken care of, some you may be able to live with, and some maybe not. You need to know what if any problems the home has, what the costs are to correct them, and then make an informed decision as to whether you want to proceed and purchase the home.
Yes, a home inspection will cost you money but look at it like insurance. It is worth the investment and gives you the security of knowing everything you need to know in order to make an informed decision on a home sale or purchase.
