If you’re just buying a new home finding a good home inspector is a big part of the home buying process. So how do you find one if you are new to a certain area?
If you are buying a home in for example, Pataskala, Ohio then do a search for Pataskala home inspector in chattanooga. You can also do a search for home inspectors in nearby cities or towns and still locate an inspector will will serve your location. You can then compare the inspection reports with each other.
It is recommended that G.F.C.I. protected outlets be installed in all of these locations regardless of the year built. Some home inspectors will make such a recommendation in their reports.
If the home inspection turns up a few minor flaws, you should be able to negotiate a solution well before the closing. It’s perfectly acceptable for a seller to offer a cash settlement at the closing table to cover the cost of the repairs. Be aware that this cash settlement must be approved by your lender. The seller can’t give you money at the closing without the lender knowing about it.
When a prospective buyer looks at a previously owned home they can fall in love with aspects of that home. Either its price, location, number of bedrooms, school district or remodeled kitchen; any or all of these factors can strike an emotional chord. They imagine living in this “new” home, and they like the picture that they see, so they sign a purchase contract.
Chances are you will not get to meet the person you hire before he or she shows up to inspect the house you are buying. Before this, your first contact will be on the phone. Here is your chance to ask questions and see if he or she is a good fit for you. Most people’s main concern here is price. How much do you charge for a home inspection? Let me say, if you want a thorough inspection done on the property expect to pay at least $250.00, and maybe up to $600.00 or more, depending on where you live. If you pay anything less than this, plan to be disappointed.
It takes a while to get your home inspection business going. No one wants to the first one to give your services a try. Understandable. To get you home inspection business going you will need to learn how to market yourself. This is not taught well in the programs I have seen.
Buying a home is a complex process and involves a lot of things to be taken into account. A good home inspector can give you a detailed analysis of the house that you wish to buy. Just be careful before you give this responsibility to someone.
