Don’t Purchase a Home that is a Ticking Time Bomb: Choose a Professional Home Inspection

It far too easy to be seduced by the look and appearance when buying your  new home, it can have a great look and feel about the place, meaning you can forget about the shabby brick work or the unnatural gurgling coming from the boiler system, in the excitement of purchasing.

Recent research, which has been carried out by the RICS, has revealed some shocking truths many homebuyers don’t know about.  A large number of first time homebuyers are unknowingly setting themselves up for thousands of dollars in repair bills. These bills and repairs on their new home might have been avoided, brought to light, if an experienced home inspector viewed pre-purchase.

The buyers due to a general lack of understanding regarding the actual home buying process miss these issues. Many buyers are putting themselves and family at risk because they are not or don’t understand the importance of getting independent expert advice from a qualified home inspection company.

Only a qualified and experienced surveyor can give you an accurate evaluation of the current state of the home and an accurate evaluation of how it will be 5-10 years down the line.

Make sure your new home is not a ticking time bomb

It would be fair to say that young first time buyers would be more at risk when looking to step onto the property ladder; it is a massive investment for anyone involved. It is wise to ensure that you are not putting out all your life savings on a property that could cost you even more in repairs that will leave you close to bankruptcy.

Understanding that serious defects and problems are hard to find and need an experienced trained eye to unearth them is what should push the homebuyer towards getting an evaluation of the property they are looking to purchase. You don’t want to be stuck in a home you can’t live in and a home that is unsellable.
