Home inspections are a very important part of your home buying process. In my opinion, this is the best way for you to know you made a secure investment. Once you make an offer on a house, you have a specific amount of time to conduct all of your inspections. Here in Clarksville, Tennessee that time period is around 10 days from an accepted offer date. During this period you have the ability to hire a licensed Tennessee home inspector to come out and inspect your future home. They are very detailed in their inspections and will look at every aspect of your future home. If they find any faults they will write that up in their report, along with what they recommend on correcting the issues. They do not look at cosmetic issues such as paint and blemishes on walls or floors. Once they have conducted their inspection, you will get a copy of the report. This is why home inspections are important! If there are a lot of issues and you feel like the home is nothing that you expected it to be, you can terminate the contract and search for a different home. If the report shows some problems but not much. You can negotiate repairs with the sellers and work to get the issues resolved. In the event that you are still unsatisfied with the issues of the home, then you can again terminate the contract. If you are happy with the repairs you will continue on knowing that you made a secure investment. In some cases, such as new home purchases, the report reveals nothing and you can move on immediately. This is rare but is really awesome! It is recommended that even in new construction you still get a home inspection. Just to make sure that your investment is secure. Home inspections are usually based on the size of the home but tend to be around $400. That is a small price to pay to ensure that your home is an investment worth making. You wouldn't want to invest in something that will not last!
