WHY USE A BUYER’S AGENT?

Purchasing a home is undoubtedly, one of the largest and most important purchases you will make in your lifetime.  So why wouldn’t you ask for help from a professional?

HOME INSPECTIONS -A MUST!

Buying a home is one of the most important investment decisions you will make in your lifetime. As such, it makes sound financial sense to enlist the services of a qualified home inspection company to ensure your home is as solid and secure on the inside as it is on the outside. It’s not fun to discover after closing that your dream home comes with an additional unexpected and sometimes costly, repair or replacement expense.

A home inspection will determine the structural and mechanical soundness of your home. Your home inspector will identify existing and potential problem areas, suggest practical low-cost solutions, and provide estimates regarding costs for any work required. Shortly after the inspection has taken place, a written report summarizing the findings is generally provided to the potential purchaser.
