Importance of Inspection

As a buyer, you are entitled to know exactly what you are getting. Don’t take anything for granted, not even what you see or what the seller or listing agent tell you. A professional home inspection is something you MUST do, whether you are buying an existing home or a new one. An inspection is an opportunity to have an expert look closely at the property you are considering purchasing and getting both an oral and written opinion as to its condition.

Beforehand, make sure the report will be done by a professional organization, such as a local trade organization or a national trade organization such as ASHI (American Society of Home Inspection). Not only should you never skip an inspection, but also you should be present with the inspector during the inspection. This gives you a chance to ask questions about the property and get answers that are not biased. In addition, the oral comments are typically more revealing and detailed than what you will find on the written report. Once the inspection is complete, review the inspection report carefully.

You have to demand an inspection when you present your offer. It must be written in as a contingency. If you do not approve the inspection report, then do not buy the home. Most real estate contracts automatically provide an inspection contingency.

Testimonials

This letter is in reference to real estate agent Kathy Kreutzberg. Kathy assisted my wife and me in our recent purchase of a property in the Highland, Illinois area. This purchase was especially challenging as we are relocating from Madison, Wisconsin. Kathy got our attention immediately by responding to an inquire we submitted on-line on a Saturday evening. We did not expect a response so quickly, let alone on a Saturday night. This was indicative of her working style as she was always available and a tireless worker. Kathy listened to our interests and assisted in helping us in the home search. Because of the distance we had to travel to view homes she was very patient and worked hard to arrange viewing around our schedule. She was also very candid in sharing local information about properties and the areas that matched our interests. Kathy was knowledgeable of the area, was helpful without being too aggressive. I would give Kathy the highest recommendation. Jim Merritt
