0 Comment

The real estate market right now is perfect for those that are looking for a new home. With interest rates still staying low, and the amount of open homes on the market, you are sure to find a home that will fit all of your needs. The question for every home buyer: Is what type of home should I look for? Should I go with new, pre-owned, or a foreclosure that may need a little work.

Depending on your financial situation, finding a home that needs a little bit of work can be a great avenue for getting everything you want out of your home. Many times the price on the home will be lower since it is in need of repairs, but it is vital that you take the time to determine the amount of repairs needed to bring the home to the level that you are wanting.

Hiring a licensed home inspector is the perfect way to determine the problems that the home has. Since you are the one hiring the inspector and not the owner of the home, they are working for you. It is their job to locate any problems within the home that falls in their scope of inspection.

At IPIS PLLC, you can rest assured that you are hiring an inspector that will take their time going over every part of the home to help you make your decision on whether or not to purchase the home. Even though we provide a very extensive inspection, not everything will be inspected (Inspection Exclusions). Since not everything is covered in a home inspection, it is imperative that you have a professional inspect each system so that you know the status of your equipment before you purchase the home. We have worked with many of these professionals in the past, and can help you locate some perfect for the job.

Buying a fixer upper is a great way to save money, but you need to ensure that you are well informed about what you are getting into. Contact us today to set up your home inspection appointment, or with any questions that you have about everything covered with our inspection. We proudly serve the greater Houston, Katy, Cy-Fair, and surrounding areas for all of your home inspection needs.
