Home Inspection and Insurance
"Beauty is only skin deep" is especially true for houses. A fresh coat of paint or new carpeting may disguise serious flaws. That's why you want to make sure a professional inspects your new home. And to protect your most valuable investment, be sure to have homeowner's insurance.
An inspection may take a few hours and may be expensive, but it can save you time and headaches in the long run. A professional home inspector surveys all of the structures and systems (such as heating and cooling) in a house for sale, as well as any appliances that the homeowner is leaving behind, to ensure that they are all sound and in good working order. Take notes as you tour with the inspector and get the inspection report in writing. If you make repair of all damages a condition of your contract with the seller, and the seller refuses to do so, the report can be used to support your claim against them and allow you to cancel the agreement.
