Every once in a while, someone asks me, why do I need a home inspection? For most persons, a home will be the most significant purchase and investment they make in their life. As a buyers agent, I know that my clients fall in love with homes...but it just makes sense to know if there are any surprises. Even a home that appears to be well maintained can have hidden defects that the seller may not be aware of.
The added benefit of a good home inspection is that by attending, you can learn many details about the home, how to maintain the systems, and be confident that you are getting exactly waht you are paying for. Home inspectors, like brokers, are required to be trained and licensed in Washington. One additional consideration...new homes need inspections too. While new homes are fresh and ready to move-in, they still can have surprises. As a buyers agent, I always recommend that we include an inspection contingency in a contract to purchase a home. No home is perfect, but knowing what issues a home has allows you to make an informed decision.
