Before you head to the closing on your new home, make sure you've had it professionally inspected. A home inspection is a thorough visual examination of the physical structure and systems of a home. If you are thinking of buying a house, co-op or condominium, you should have it properly inspected before the final purchase by an experienced and impartial professional home inspector.
A professional home inspection is essential-- it will help you determine if you're investing all that money into your dream home or tossing it down a money pit.
Before you make your final buying or selling decision, make sure you obtain a professional home inspection, whether you are in Grand Rapids, Holland, Muskegon, Lansing or Detroit. Your prospective home may look beautiful on the inside and out, have a lot of great amenities and seem incredibly well maintained. It may even be just a few years old or freshly built. But without a professional home inspector to look in the places you wouldn't think for the things you might not even realize could be wrong, you are gambling your future on a 15 to 30 year mortgage.
