If you are looking to buy or sell property in the next few months, take my advice have it inspected by a qualified professional. Rumor has it that do-it-yourself inspection kits are gaining in popularity. But if you choose to inspect it yourself, I’d say prepare for the worst.
If you’re a home buyer, inspecting the property will help you identify potential problems and might also cue you to preventative measures, avoiding costly future repairs. If you intend to sell your home, an inspection prior to putting it on the market will give you a clear picture of what may be discovered by a buyer’s inspector. And also provides you an opportunity to make any necessary repairs – potentially adding value to your home and making it more attractive to prospective buyers. What is an inspector?
