Home Inspections

The home-inspection process is smooth sailing with the right agent by your side.

Getting A Home Inspection

You know an inspection is inevitable, so it’s to your advantage to be proactive and work with our network agents ahead of time. Since they experience inspections with every client, they’re familiar with local codes and can cue you in to simple projects to complete before the inspection happens. That lets you make important updates on your timeline—well before negotiations begin.

Buying a home may well be the largest financial investment you will ever make. Naturally you will want to know as much as possible about the property before you finalize the purchase at closing. It's important to hire a knowledgeable, independent home inspector for advise on the overall condition of the property.

And once the inspection happens? Your agent can help negotiate the price of your home based on the outcome and can write an Inspection Contingency Clause into the contract if needed.

Set aside 1-3% of your purchase price to cover unexpected fees and expenses.


Plan Ahead

Specialists recommend holding at least six mortgage payments in the bank in case of emergency.
