RGV KVEO (NEWSCENTER 23) — Most people know when they buy a home, it's a good idea to get an inspection.
But it's also important to take a final walk-through before you close the deal.
"A lot of the decision to buy a home is emotional. People buying the house are really excited about it. They don't tend to look at the details or they don't tend to look at how things work."
"When buying a house, the home inspection is one of the most important things you are going to do because that is when you are going to bring a professional in and assess the condition of the house. But a lot of the times consumers skip out on going to the home inspection. What they then miss out on is learning about their home and seeing firsthand any problem areas."
Once the home inspection is complete, you're still not done.
You're next step before closing is a final walk through with your real estate agent.
Run thorough a checklist of sorts, testing appliances to make sure they work; running water to check for leaks.
If you discover any issues talk to your real estate agent about your options.
