Leone Harris-Ewing Discusses the Importance Of a Good Home Inspector When Buying in Wasilla Alaska
When you buy a Wasilla home you not only buy the structure, but the history of the structure. Although most people are honest, you still have to do what is necessary to protect yourself. That is why hiring a home inspector is essential according to Leone Harris-Ewing from REMAX Dynamic of The Valley.
Having a home inspection is a good idea for many reasons. There may be issues with the house that the seller would rather not disclose for fear of losing the sale. (although sellers should disclose these issues on the State of Alaska Real Estate Disclosures) It also may involve a very pricey repair that they are not willing, or even able to take on. But there are many times that the current owners just are not aware that problems exist. There is no intent of deception- they just do not know themselves that a problem exists. For all of these reasons, it is always a good investment to inspect the home before buying.
When looking for a qualified inspector in Wasilla Alaska, make sure they are certified with the applicable agencies. AK has their own designations and a good inspector will be a member of these agencies. These certifications are put into place to help maintain a high level of qualified personnel representing their trade.
A good inspector will also have all the necessary equipment to perform the task. This may sound simple, but there have been numerous instances where an inspector drove to the property in a car without a ladder. An inspector cannot surmise the situation without all the appropriate tools. You are paying this individual to confirm that your purchase will be a good investment. If they don't show up with the appropriate gear, how can you take their opinion seriously?
Home inspections can take anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the size of the home. A rushed job means something may be missed. You want someone detail oriented and as picky as possible. A good person will climb under the house, on the roof, in the attic, and anywhere else he can access. After it is complete, he should provide you a detailed, written report that you can go over with your Wasilla Alaska agent.
