Why Should I Get A Home Inspection When Buying or Selling in Tampa Bay?

Why Should I Get A Home Inspection When Buying or Selling in Tampa Bay?

The home inspection is one of the most critical pieces of the buying and selling process. It’s good to know what to look for before any inspection. If you’re buying, you’ll have a better idea of what the inspector is looking for and if he or she misses anything. If you’re selling, you can have an idea of what to fix before your home goes on the market. It will take away the chance of surprises once your home is under contract ensuring a smoother transaction for both parties.

Here are a few things to look for: 

Are there visible cracks?

Are your appliances all working well?

Does the drainage slope AWAY from the house?

Below is a good checklist of more items to look for in a home inspection. You can also download our pdf version here: home inspection checklist
