What If The Home I’m Looking To Buy Fails Its Inspection?
We often hear our clients ask me “What if the home I’m looking to buy fails its inspection?” or sellers will ask us “What do I do if my home fails the inspection?”
When inspecting a home, Anchor Home Inspections, will never give it a Pass or Fail grade, nor can any home inspector ask a seller to make repairs to the deficiencies we may find. Think of an inspection, as a professional home checkup to know exactly what you’re buying.
Purchasing a home is very emotional and things can get overlooked during your walkthrough. A home inspector is your extra set of eyes into areas of your new home that you may never see, such as the attic, crawlspaces, inside electric panels, inside furnace enclosures and countless other key areas. Using our years of experience and training, we look over and document everything not constructed or installed properly and test the functionality of everything that is permanently installed in your potential home. Shortly after the inspection, you will get a detailed report with any discoveries we found where things may be deficient or not up to par along with any recommendations that may bring the property up to current safety standards.
The inspection and it’s reporting are designed to give you all the information you need on the homes current condition, so you can then make an informed decision on its purchase. There is always a lot of emotions involved in buying a new home and an inspection is just one, of the many, important steps that might make this decision a little easier. Armed with your inspection report, it is now up to you on what to do with it. You can work with your real estate agent to work with the seller to have some of the issues or address or if you are not satisfied with the report look for more homes for sale in CT. If you are using a realtor, they may be able to assist you in this difficult decision.
