Good Monday Morning!

One of the most important things you will want to do when purchasing a home is to have it inspected thoroughly by a professional home inspector.  Not only will your home inspector be able to find any damage such as dry rot or pest infestation but they can also find potential probelms with heating systems, roofing, plumbing electrical, appliances, etc.  Serious problems with homes do not just show up with older homes, but newer homes as well.  Don't ever feel that the home you are purchasing is in great shape without a thorough inspection. This is one thing that you never want to leave to chance.  Home inspectors can also point out areas that might need attention down the road and give you helpful information on how to maintain your home and service systems such as heating, plumbing and electrical.

When choosing a home inspection provider, it is adviseable to ask your Real Estate agent as to who they recommend.  Once you have ordered the inspection, it is also a good idea to meet with the inspector at the home and follow the inspector as they perform their inspection. This way your inspector can actaully show you problem areas and talk with you about how to do routine maintenance.  Once the home inspector has completed the inspection, they will generate a written report.  It is also adviseable to sit down with your home inspector and go over the inspection report.  Investing some time and money with a whole house inspection is one of the best investments you can make when purchasing a home. 

If you are considering selling a home, one of the best investments you can make as a seller is to have your home inspected before you place it on the market.  By having your home inspected ahead of time you can address any major repair issues prior to going on the market. This alone will save you time and greatly lessen your stress in selling.  It will take away the pain of negotiating repairs with a buyer part way through your sales transaction.  I find that pre-inspected homes sell faster and for more money than those that have not been inspected. 

If you would like to connect with a prefessional home inspector in the Eugene and Springfield market area, please contact me.  I would be happy to furnish you with a list of home inspectors that we have found to do a great job.

Have An Awesome Week!
