While most home buyers understand that a home inspection is necessary before making the final purchase, they may not understand the benefits of having a home inspection completed. Not only will you discover the complete condition of the home, but you will also place yourself in a position to negotiate better terms with the seller. At TEK Inspections, we provide thorough home inspection solutions that provide these benefits and many more.

Why Have a Home Inspection Before You Buy a Home?

Discover Any Potential Issues

Before you buy a home, it’s always a good idea to know as much as possible about its condition. When you’re investing so much of your budget and time into a home, you want to discover any unknown or potential problems. A home inspection can uncover issues with the electrical, plumbing, or HVAC system, as well as the foundation or structure itself. 

Have the Ability to Negotiate on Price

If you’ve discovered some unknown issues that need to be addressed, you now have some leverage in order to negotiate the price of the home. Let’s say you are looking at a home that is close to your maximum budget. If you now have to plan on expensive repairs after purchasing the home, you can negotiate the home’s price with the sellers based on the work that needs to be done.

Give the Seller the Opportunity to Make the Repairs

When you find problems with the condition of the home, another option is to give the seller the opportunity to make the repairs themselves. They may wish to get the full asking price for their home and prefer to pay for any repairs in order to make that happen. This may not save on the cost of the home but it will save your future budget when it comes to completing any repair issues that were found during the inspection.
