Never Buy Home Without Inspection Contingency in Purchase Contract

NJ home inspections

Sherlock Home Inspectors, NJ home inspection specialists

Never buy a home without an inspection contingency in the purchase contract. Hiring an experienced Bergen County home inspection service, Sherlock Home Inspectors, can ensure that you know the exact condition of your investment. Your REALTOR should always have the home inspection contingency in your contract but it is your obligation to make certain that it is there. The inspection contingency allows buyers to negotiate further should issues with a home arise. This also allows a buyer to get out of a contract should issues be too daunting.  A NJ home inspector will follow a standard checklist to cover the basics of a home’s health and condition.

Choosing a reputable NJ home inspector to evaluate a home is an essential part of any real estate transaction. Locating a home inspector is best done with the help of your REALTOR. It is also a great idea to speak with friends, neighbors, and family members for recommendations on Bergen County home inspectors. Nothing validates a reputation like firsthand knowledge and recommendations.

The old saying “you can’t judge a book by its cover” rings true when it comes to real estate and NJ home inspections. Even brand new homes have issues. In fact, every home has a list of problems. However, not all problems are big issues. Knowing that the foundation, structure, and systems in a home are in good working order is very important for home buyers. Nothing is worse than accepting the keys to a home after a closing to find out that you have purchased a true money pit. Take the time to hire a reputable NJ home inspector and know exactly what you are purchasing.
