Home Inspection: Is It Necessary For A Closing?

Once you find your dream home in Oregon that you want to purchase, it is sometimes a little easier to drop the home inspection clause from the transaction to entice the seller on your offer. Unfortunately this is not always the ideal situation as it could come back to haunt you later on.This is the reason that an Agreement of Purchase and Sale includes a clause regarding a home inspection. This is included for your peace of mind and security.

Without this clause, you may be missing detrimental issues on your dream home that could come back to haunt you once the transaction is complete and you now own a home with multiple problems. It is wise to consider the risk of potential troubles and expensive repairs before you alienate the clause from the final contract. The risk is no where near the amount that you could save if, for instance, the roof is needing multiple repairs costing a few thousand dollars.

What Will A Home Inspection Contain

A qualified home inspector will examine the possible trouble areas in the home, including electrical, roofing, plumbing, heating/air conditioning, foundation and septic systems. With this home inspection, you will be in a better state to access the entire situation of the home before making a final decision. Just like any major money transaction, time and research must be spent to ensure that this is the perfect home for you to purchase.
