Now you have the accepted contract, it’s time to get down and dirty. The inspection fees can add up. You might be tempted to skip out on the Home Inspection but there are really good reasons why you need one.
Top 3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Skip a Home Inspection in Tucson
1. It provides a way out of the contract
A quality home inspection from Jack Randall with Arizona Home Inspections LLC will reveal acute information about the condition of a home and its systems. This helps determine the costs of repairs and maintenance the home may require immediately, and over time. If the buyer isn’t happy with the findings of the home inspection, it usually the last chance you have to back out of the contract. Some repair items are just too big to handle or the potential for one may be present.
A home inspection can identify common household safety issues like carbon monoxide or mold, which surprisingly can occur in such a dry climate as Tucson AZ.
3. Negotiating Tool
The home inspection report presents an opportunity to ask for repairs and/or negotiate a price reduction. I often say during a home inspection “now that you understand the report let your realtor go to work”. This is where a smart realtor will pay off. The good ones know how to delicately present repairs bid and or request and prepare the buyer for the potential outcome of the process.
In the end, It is your responsibility to understand as many details as you can about the property. Home inspections provide several details about the home and systems, allowing you to make the best decisions on how the move forward.
