Stress is a condition that most people try hard to avoid. The first time homebuyer sometimes finds that buying their first house can be very stressful. A sympathetic and knowledgeable inspector can walk them through the inspection process while instructing the new homeowner in the general maintenance of the home and give them a possible life span of some appliances, A/C unit, and roofing.
Walking them through the home during the inspection can educate them and help reduce the stress of buying their first home.
With anything that is a first in life, the lack of experience can make home buying very complicated. If you are not taught what to look for, then you could purchase a money pit.
Watching the movie, The Money Pit with Tom Hanks, there was no professional home inspector to enlighten him to his potential issues. It’s the job of the home inspector to help prevent you from falling into that same ‘pit.”
That is why educating the new homebuyer is a very important key in helping reduce the stress of home buying.
The question is who has the most experience in home examinations and can professionally assist you in all the ways to check for potential repairs and pitfalls?
The answer: Hiring a professional home inspector that has not only many years of inspection experience but also extensive experience in construction and remodeling is very important to the homebuyer.
Experienced Home Inspectors Can Assist In The Home Buying Process
An expert home inspector can not only show you possible or current issues within the home but can also advise you on how to correct them. This is especially true if the problems are small and can be easy to fix by the future homeowner.
Some homeowners may have some skills in home maintenance; others may have none at all. We recommend that homeowners look under the sinks or around toilets for possible water leaks. Cracks in the walls or caulk gaps around doors and windows are other things worth looking into.
Owning a house is like owning a car, you have to wash the car, check the oil and tire pressure. Similarly with a house, you must take care of common maintenance with things you care about.
All of this advice is not only given to the first time homebuyer but also to all of those people who have owned homes before and to the investors that rent out properties.
