This is what you risk when you skip on inspections – a guide for home buyers

There is no business as difficult as buying real estate property in a competitive market.  This is especially very difficult if you are new to the real estate business.  There is as much competition with real estate purchase as there is with the sale of real estate property.  Sometimes, you find that your offers to purchase a home keep getting rejected by the seller and their agent.  This can be very heartbreaking and a lesson at the same time.

Most people will try and make a desperate move to find a certain kind of property.  If you try this, you will pay much more for the asking price than you are normally would. Some sellers even avoid the inspections so that you will have to pay the full amount they are asking for.

Passing on the inspections of a real estate property is never a good idea, it may look perfect but the main problems are probably not very noticeable just by having a glance at the property. if you are a new buyer or have just had some few inspections on a couple of homes, you will not be able to see some asbestos or any evidence that points to termite infestation.

 Sometimes many people feel like they have found the perfect home and they are immediately attached to it emotionally. The next thing you know, you are making the purchase immediately even without having it inspected.  At first when you get the home, you may not notice if there is a problem for instance with the electricity or water system. A couple of months later, things will start to unravel in front of your home. The worst thing is, you will not have enough equity or savings to handle such a repair.

Even the home of your dreams will have a few mistakes here and there. Some may not be major issues but it is better to confirm than to be sorry when it is too late. Always conduct a pre-sale inspection before the final decision.  You may end up spending money on an inspection in a home you may not end up dying.  An inspection will give you the rights to waive an inspection contingency in case of anything.

You have the right to view the property while it is on the market. The seller, on the other hand is obligated to an inspection before they advertise the home or put it out in the market.  The seller’s inspection helps clear out the issues in the home in advance so that the buyers won’t have any trouble and will get exactly what is being advertised. Plus it gives them the chance to put the right price on the home. The main problem is that the inspector is questionable only to the seller and you have no way of knowing if they are both working against you.

Sellers with multiple offers tend to move fast so they can get the best deals. This means you have very little time for inspection. Experienced and professional agents will help you get that sorted out in no time.
