Do I really need an Inspection for my Frisco Texas Home?

I am not surprised when a Home Buyer asks me ‘Do I really need an inspection?‘. After all, this may be their first home so they don’t know what expenses can be avoided and what is a must.

My answer to the question is always – ABSOLUTELY! The buyer should always get an inspection done on a home before moving forward with the purchase. And no, the appraiser (even on FHA loans) does not inspect the home as in-depth as a Home Inspector.

Imagine moving into your home in the middle of winter, only to find out that the furnace doesn’t work. Replacing a 40 year old furnace is far more costly than hiring a home inspector. Buying a home is likely the largest investment you’ll ever make. The buyer needs to be assured they are investing in a quality home.

A Home Inspector will examine the following (and much more):

  • Heating System
  • Central Air Conditioning System
  • Interior Plumbing
  • Electrical System
  • Roof and Attic
  • Insulation
  • Walls, Ceilings, and Floors
  • Windows and Doors
  • Foundation
  • Basement (not very popular in Frisco Texas)
  • Overall Structure of the Home
The BEST part of having a home inspection before you purchase a home is this fact; if there are significant problems, you have the ability to walk away from the deal. However, if you purchase a home without a thorough inspection, you may find yourself paying more money then you should.
