Tar Heel Tip of the Week: The Importance of a Home Inspection

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016 by Jaimie Hooker

With the real estate market back in full swing and becoming more competitive than before the financial crisis that hit in 2009, having a professional home inspection completed is vital whether you are buying or selling a home.

Importance of Home Inspections

This a buyer’s market. Nobody wants to buy a home with a wet basement, nasty dirt crawl space, failing foundation or sinking concrete slab. These problems all have one thing in common; if left unresolved they can become severe and costly, not a problem a buyer would want to inherit.

Professional Home inspectors have a trained eye to find possible and current problems with a home. Seller’s should have this done before placing their home on the market to alleviate any unwanted surprises that could cause a possible buyer to walk. Having a home inspector before placing your home on the market can also help in determining the true value of the home.sinking concrete slab
