Nelson goes over the WHY, WHAT, WHEN, and HOW MUCH it costs to do a home inspection. After you have contract, what's next? Doing your DUE DILIGENCE which includes inspections. This is the best time to find out everything about the home before owning it.
WHY do any inspections at all? A home for a majority of the population will be one of the biggest purchases in their entire life. A property disclosure from the seller is always good information on the history of the home but a home inspection discovers a lot of the past and current problems of the home. Spending $250-450+ on a home inspection for a $100,000+ or more ASSET is well worth the expense.
WHEN do you do inspections? In the Columbia and Lexington SC area, our local contracts include 10 business days to conduct your DUE DILIGENCE meaning you can do all the inspections you want to spend for.
