Reasons to have a home inspected

When buying a home in California, it is important to have it inspected by an independent professional. This is because most homeowners will present their homes in the best possible light to prospective buyers, which means that an individual may not see its flaws right away. Typically, the inspection process occurs either before making a formal offer or after the offer has been accepted.

An inspection may help to reveal whether the HVAC system still works or whether or not the roof will last for another year or longer. These are items that buyers may not think about when they first see the house, but they are still important components of a home that can cost a lot of money to repair. According to the American Society of Home Inspectors, more than 90 percent of home sales involve inspections from either the buyer or the seller.

An inspector may or may not be licensed, which means that he or she may not be able to provide official advice about lead or rodent problems. Most inspections will provide prospective buyers with information related to the home's roof, drainage and HVAC systems. Inspections may also provide information about the foundation of a home as well as the condition of the plumbing, walls and ceilings.

Before buying residential real estate, it may be worthwhile for a buyer to conduct an inspection of a property. If there are issues with the home, it may be possible for a buyer to ask the seller to make changes. In the event that a known issue isn't revealed before the sale closes, it may be possible for the buyer to take legal action against the seller. This may be done with the help of an attorney.
