In most cases you want to have a home inspection done to make sure a property you want to purchases is in good condition. It’s always a good idea to find someone who’s licensed as an home inspector in your state to check out a property, especially the Roof, HVAC equipment, Electric, Foundation and more.
Warrantied Work May Be Enough
From the first walkthrough, maybe a checklist was made for the seller to address. If the seller has hired professionally licensed companies for the work, contact them to see if they will warranty their work. After speaking with these companies, maybe that will be good enough for you not to have to have a final walkthrough with a home inspector.
Home Inspectors are Almost Always a Good Idea for First Time Home Buyers
Many fist time homebuyers can find themselves having to make decisions about issues that are just beyond their understanding. This is a great reason to rely on your home inspector to reassure all the work was completed correctly.
It Makes Even More Sense For Older Homes
If the fix-it list was extensive from the first walkthough, it’s best to get an experienced home inspector who can methodically inspect each of the issues one by one without getting overwhelmed or confused. Find an inspector who has experience with older homes and their older technologies. The small fee for an inspection in these situations can sometimes save you a ton of money down the line.
