Why You Should Get the House Inspected Before You Decide to Purchase!
You’ll need to have the house properly inspected in order to get your mortgage approved. Accompany the inspector and make sure he she does a thorough inspection of the home.
The inspector should:
-Check the general condition of the home
-Look for water damage, termites and other types of infestation
-Review the electrical system, plumbing, septic tank and water heater
-Show you where potential problems might develop
-Double-check that past problems have been repaired
-Suggest important upgrades or replacements
If the inspector raises questions, your insurance company will as well. And, be sure to find out if there is an underground oil storage tank, as many insurers will not provide policies for homes that have one.
