4 Things First Time Home Buyers should not do during Inspection

The home inspection can be a terrific or a terrifying process for first-time homebuyers. But it’s a crucial way to ensure your new home is both safe to live in and won’t end up being a money pit. Keep things running smoothly by avoiding these four common mistakes.

  1. Selecting cheaper. The worse thing you can do is select the home inspector by price. You want someone who uses the latest technology backed by years of solid experience.
  2. Not being present. You really should show up to the inspection if it all possible. Everything always sounds much worse when you are not there in person to have the inspector go over their findings.
  3. Expect the inspection to pass or fail. Homes don’t pass or fail an inspection. They are simply an assessment of a home’s condition. No home is perfect and there going to be things of varying degrees.
  4. Following the inspector around. Leave them alone and let them conduct the inspection. Sounds simple enough but they have a checklist and order in which they proceed. Interrupting them to ask to look at this or that will be disruptive to their process. and they could end up missing something.

First time home buyers, don’t make those four mistakes.
