Home inspectors see a house for what it really is
What are the secrets of that house you’re thinking of buying? What’s in the basement, in the attic, on the roof? Are mechanical systems working properly?
As buyers gradually jump back into the housing market, a thorough examination of a dwelling is an essential step toward homeownership. It can increase confidence about the condition of a property and save thousands of dollars down the road. Risky deals like foreclosures and short sales require even more scrutiny. That’s where a home inspection comes in.
“Home inspectors lay all the cards on the table,” said Doug Hanscom, broker associate with ReMax Properties in Western Springs.
