La Quinta, CA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Brad Schmett, Broker Associate with Luxury Homes by Keller Williams today announced that his professional team of REALTORS® will encourage home buyers to obtain a home inspection prior to the close of escrow. Given the number of resale homes currently on the market, a thorough home inspection is a prudent way to avoid expensive future home repairs.
Following the recession of the past few years and the increased number of distressed properties that have hit the real estate market, most real estate professionals are recommending home inspections be an absolute part of the buying process. Older homes, while often charming and rustic, are particularly vulnerable to such issues as lead based paint, termites, faulty wiring and plumbing problems. It pays to know ahead of time if these conditions exist.
Schmett observed that, “It just makes good sense to have a professional home inspector examine every major facet of the home prior to purchasing it. The old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure has never been truer than when it comes to real estate. Troubleshooting for potential problems down the line can save more than just headaches and money. It can also avoid lawsuits as well. For almost everyone, purchasing a home is the largest single investment they will ever make. It pays to make an educated purchase."
Savvy consumers turn to professionals more frequently than ever given the high price of today's homes. Such a substantial, long-term investment demands careful planning and full disclosure of every aspect of the property. Organized and concise language on home inspection lists makes them simple to read and easy to understand for home buyers, brokers, and attorneys. Home inspections may be ordered during the early part of escrow process, are reasonably priced and can generally be completed within a few hours with a full written report within a day or two.
