When Should You Get a Home Inspection?

When Should You Get a Home Inspection?  The answer is always!   We represent a large amount of people buying homes and we always highly recommend getting a home inspection.  I was just at an inspection for an out of state client yesterday and I met with my home inspector from Clearview Home Inspections.  This was a brand new home from one of the top builders but he still was finding items!   Although a brand new home typically has a warranty it is best to get a home inspector in the home to handle all the issues before you close on the home.  Most builders I know will gladly repair anything that is wrong on a brand new home in order to satisfy the buyer.  That is where your Realtor comes in to play!  Myself and my team aggressively negotiate all inspection repairs for our clients so they get their new home in an acceptable condition with no hidden suprises!   On a resale home it is extremely important to get a full inspection.  Almost every resale home has issues and it is important to get a 3rd party licensed inspector in to make sure the home is up to code and repairs are revealed(many times the owner does not even know of some of the issues!)    Get an inspection when buying a home!   If you are considering selling a home you can get a preinspection too which will result in you not having any suprises when a buyer has their own inspection!


We highly recommend ClearView Home Inspections on the Northside of Indy and suburbs!   (317) 578-0890
