You’re trying to buy your dream house. But what if the home comes with hidden extra repair costs that the seller doesn’t even know about? Knowing what needs attention is crucial – it lets you get repair estimates if necessary and use those costs to negotiate with your seller.
Schedule your pre-purchase home inspection as soon as you sign the purchase contract. That way you have some time to think about what work you’d need done before closing, what can wait until the keys are yours, or whether this is really the right home for you. Informed decisions are best!
