Dog Days of Summer Special $50 home inspection discount
First Time Home Buyers
A new home, probably one of the biggest investments in one’s lifetime.
Yes! we all like saving some money, when possible, but if you seek Peace-of-Mind, it is not wise to skip out on the property inspection just to save a few hundred dollars.
Data shows that when a home buyer skip out on the home inspection, they regret it after spending thousands of dollars and accumulated repair cost that a certified experience home in spector should’ve discovered during an inspection.
True Story and Miss Information
A client realtor advised her that it was a waste of money doing a home inspection because the appraiser would evaluate and inspect the property for her as a part of the appraisal process and the property has just been rehabbed.
The appraiser responsibility is to determine the value of the property, not the condition of the property. The appraiser will be in-and-out of the property in about 15 minutes just long enough to capture a set amount of information like property square footage, room count, bathroom count, basement use, property’s esthetics, etc. This information is used to compare subject property with similar properties within a geographic area that have sold within the last 6 months to determine what subject property is worth.
True Story of a Disaster Averted
A home buyer fictitiously called Mrs. Price Shopper called Sabreezz Home Inspection shopping for home inspection quotes. She was purchasing a newly rehabbed 4000+ Square feet $400,000 home in one of Chicago suburbs. She said her realtor told her she didn’t need a home inspection because the appraiser would conduct an inspection. That information was inaccurate and misleading. Mrs. Shopper confirmed what was told to her by Sabreezz Home Inspection by asking her mortgage loan officer. She immediately called Sabreezz Home Inspection back and decided that the additional cost for her family peace of mind outweighed the saving of the cost of a home inspection.
She was very happy she did!!
