The home inspection is one of the most critical steps of the home buying process. However, many homebuyers skip it to move forward with their offer on a home. In many cases, the individuals who skip the home inspection ultimately regretting it later on when they uncover issues with the property. Continue reading to discover a few reasons why the home inspection is such an integral part of the home buying process.

Safety 

Safety should be a top priority when you are purchasing a property. You may be surprised at how many issues are uncovered through a home inspection. A home inspection can often reveal safety issues within a home such as mold, carbon dioxide, and radon. This reason alone is arguably one of the most important reasons to invest in a home inspection.

Negotiations

By having a home inspection report in your back pocket, you will have an important negotiation tool as a homebuyer. You can use your inspection report to request a price reduction to make up for issues, or to ask the seller for repairs. If you want to land the best deal possible, a home inspection will help to reduce the likelihood of unforeseen expenses after you close on the home. 

Clarity

Even if you are set on a home, a home inspection may make you rethink your decision to submit an offer. After calculating what you will need to pay for repairs, you may realize that it does not make sense financially. Even if the home still fits your price range, you may not want to deal with repairs like cracks in walls or water leaks. In many cases, a home inspection report allows people to realize that a “move-in-ready” home is not as move-in-ready as they initially thought.
