Why You Should Consider Doing a Pre-Purchase Home Inspection
Buying a home can be a bit stressful, especially when it comes to home inspections. When you are first made aware of home inspections, you may think they are all the same. The truth is there are several types of inspections. The two major ones are pest inspections and building inspections. These can be purchased in a pre-purchase home inspection bundle or as separate options. You may be wondering what benefits there are to the pre-purchase option. Here are a few that may make a difference to you in your home buying situation:
Preparation for Any Purchase Agreement
A pre-purchase option allows you to have an inspection paid for and standing by regardless of the property you end up choosing. Some properties may only require a building inspection, while others may require a pest inspection before the sale can process. You may also have properties that require a satisfactory building inspection to start the buying process and then later require a pest control inspection at the end of the purchase. Regardless of the conditions specified in the buyer's agreement, a pre-purchase inspection bundle will likely fit the needs.
Covers Required Inspections
When you purchase just a building inspection or just a pest inspection when you need them, rather than a pre-purchase option, you may be getting different options in those inspections. For example, if you buy a pre-purchase inspection you will see a list of the itemized portions of the inspection. There will likely be more areas that are covered under the pre-purchase because it is geared to cover anything that may come up in the buyer's agreement and related clauses of the purchase agreement. If you order the inspection as needed, then you will likely need to purchase extras to fit the needs of the clause in the buyer's agreement, or you may find yourself needing additional inspections that are not offered in the basic inspections.
Many of the pre-purchase inspections and bundles will offer a free consultation. This consultation will go over the kind of home you are looking for, the possible inspections that may come with a home purchase, and what you may need to expect that you were not aware of prior to the consultation. Some of these bundles offer pre-purchase building and pest inspections. This will help the inspectors decide what pre-purchase options may be best for your needs and which ones will offer you most comprehensive inspections.
These are just a few of the benefits of using a pre-purchase building and pest inspections plan. For more benefits dealing with your direct purchasing situation, contact a local inspections office or contractor for pricing and details.
