A professional home inspection in the Los Angeles area is essential to the home buying process. It’s important to determine if your new home is a sound investment, and more importantly, a safe place to live. You’re not just buying a house; you’re buying a place to raise your family and build your life. Think about all the time you will spend in your house over the next 10, 20, or 30 years. This is not something to rush through, it’s important to cover all of your bases.
The Home Inspection Report is vital information.
A home inspection can unearth valuable information about a house and its systems. A house is a large investment, getting an inspection could save you thousands of dollars in the long run. It makes you aware of what costs, repairs, and maintenance the home may require immediately, and over time, and gives you a chance to back out of the offer if you’re unhappy with the findings.
A home inspection can be a strong bargaining chip.
The results of the home inspection can offer you a vehicle to negotiate further repairs, and potentially lower the overall price of the home.
A detailed home inspection report gives you accurate, unbiased information.
While Los Angeles can have some of the most beautiful weather in the U.S., every home, new or old, will have defects of some sort. If you get a quality inspection before you close on the house, you can avoid paying out of pocket for costly repairs down the road.
A professional and certified home inspector can uncover the defects and let you know whether they are minor or major. This alone could be the difference between walking away or sinking yourself with a bad investment.
Hiring a Local Home Inspector
Our inspectors have discovered alarming defects while inspecting houses, condos and real estate property in the Los Angeles, California area. Our advice to you is to never consider buying a home or a piece of property without first getting a comprehensive inspection of the property.
Everyone has heard the horror stories about poor unsuspecting home-buyers who locked themselves into a long mortgage, later to find devastating problems with the house. Obviously no one wants to find something wrong with their new house, but isn’t it more important to know what you’re walking into before you sign a mortgage?
In many transactions, it’s standard to include a clause making the purchase contingent upon the findings of a home inspection.
- The seller may cover the repair costs
- You and the seller may agree to split those costs
- The seller may credit you to make the repairs yourself
- The seller might reduce the price of the property
- If you all can’t come to an agreement, you can walk away from the deal
Unfortunately though, if you skip the inspection, that decision could come back to haunt you, and may cost you a significant amount of money.
