Buying a property is one thing but getting inspected is another. House inspection is an important part of buying which can save you a lot of money from home improvement. These are some of the tips to get the most out of a home inspection.
- Be Present – Showing up for house inspection shows that you truly care. Once the inspection starts, ask questions and seek out different problems to check further. The home inspector will do his best in clearing out your doubts.
- Do some Homework first – It is important to have a house inspector that you trust. Many realtors do recommend a few house inspectors but its best to find one on your own. Finding your own house inspector will not be impartial in giving you honest views about the property.
- Click Some Pictures –A good home inspector will always bring a camera for inspection. You can also ask your inspector to get photographs of places you may not be comfortable going to (roof, attic, under decks etc).
- Pay Attention to the Roof –The interior of a house depends on the roof’s condition. You must check about the age of the roof and when it was changed the last time. That’s because roofs are expensive as well as labor-intensive. So, make sure your home inspector inspects the roof of the house.
There are companies that provide building inspections in Melbourne and other parts of Australia.
