Here are some risks you have to face if you skip the home inspection:
No turning Back – You want to make sure that you get the most out of your money. A home inspection will allow you to choose for yourself whether or not the home is what you think it is. Waiving an inspection will most likely give you regrets when you find out what issues exists in the home after the fact.
Safety – You should not be taking risks in buying a home. Buying a home is a significant investment, and your family’s safety could depend on it. Ask yourself if you’re willing to risk health issues because of undiscovered mold infestations or safety issues due to structural issues. Do not sacrifice your peace of mind by skipping the home inspections.
Reveal Illegal Additions or Installations – A home inspection will let you discover issues that cannot be seen unless inspected thoroughly by a professional home inspector. Illegal or unpermitted room additions significantly affect overall usability, taxes, and insurance.
Negotiating Tool – Skipping the home inspection will let you lose the chance to use an inspection report to negotiate. Don’t throw away the opportunity just because you want to save a little bit of money. You might regret your choice when you are paying for more unexpected costly repairs in the future.
