DUE DILLIGENCE

DUE DILLIGENCE

Buying a home can bring a lot of uncertainty, especially when a seller doesn’t have much knowledge about the home or the age of the mechanicals and other big-ticket items. It is important as a buyer to perform your due dilligence!


Let’s be real — even if a seller has knowledge about the home, we would definitely want to get the opinion from an unbiased source who is an expert in their field.


Here are the most common inspections:

• Visual & Mechanical (General Home Inspection)
• Structural (engineering)
• Wood Destroying Insect / Termite
• Radon Gas
• Mold (air quality + labs)
• Lead-Based Paint (if older)
• Sewer (septic / hydraulic + sewer line)
• Water (well, pump, filtration, labs)
• Pool (visual, mechanical, dye)
• Stucco (moisture probe/invasive)
• Insurance (flood, prior claims)


→ Make sure to take the time to attend the inspections with the professionals, this way you get first-hand knowledge on your new home and you can ask questions on maintenance items. Every home is going to have issues — so it’s important to prioritize what is most important, and plan for the rest.


PRO TIP: even if you waive the right to a home inspection to win a multiple offer situation, it is important that you still have one, even if it is after you move in!

Need a trusted Home Inspector or Licensed Contractor. I have great connections available for my clients, friends, and family.
