All homes have problems, even new homes. The only question is how serious are these problems? Our inspectors understand the difference between major and minor problems and will communicate that difference.
It is up to you to decide how any defects the inspection uncovered affects your decision to purchase. If major problems are discovered, you may want to try negotiating with the seller to have them repaired before closing. The report can also be used to negotiate on the contract price. Your inspector can discuss the findings with you and help put them in the proper perspective. Your realtor can also give you insight. Ultimately, the decision rests with you. Knowing about potential problems before you buy gives you the power to make an informed and competent decision.
