10 Myths About Owning a Home People Still Believe


Home Inspectors Will Find Every Problem

A home inspection is a vital step in the home buying process. Unfortunately, a commonly unstated myth about home inspections is that they are fully comprehensive. In reality, even the best home inspector can’t examine every square inch of your home. The solution? Supplement the inspection with your own observations. Inspect the home on your own during a walk through, then be sure to be present when the home inspection takes place. Walk the property with the inspector, and be sure to point out/question the items you noticed previously. Any issues you noticed will carry more weight in negotiations when it comes from a third party.

If you already own your home, you might be thinking this tip doesn’t apply to you. But in fact, a home inspection can be conducted at any time. If you’ve been in your home for a decade or more, consider having an inspector review the home. He or she may point out issues that you’ve come to consider normal, or haven’t noticed because of their slow development. Dig deeper into how to get the most out any home inspection.
