Not So Fast

You have to move quickly to buy a house in Kansas City as the inventory of existing homes is tight. Your offer on a house will have competition and you may begin to feel that you don't have time to really mull things over, revisit a house, or check things out thoroughly because you might lose the house to someone else. In this case, haste truly does make waste. Just this week, a couple was hustling through the process of making an offer on a house. They hired me to do a Complete Home Inspection for them and we discovered that the two layers of roofing (composite over wood) would keep them obtaining homeowners insurance. They walked away from the deal, avoiding a HUGE problem had they bought the house "as is".

It's even more important for you build a home inspection clause into your offer now so that you'll be able to slow down and find out the condition of the house. Let me thoroughly inspect the property for you, from top to bottom, and give you a written report, complete with photos, detailing my findings. Buying a house is too important to just rush through the process trying to beat everyone else. Do what you have to do to get your offer in before others. But then treat yourself to a Complete Home Inspection before everything's finalized. Too many houses are currently being bought "as is". With your Complete Home Inspection, you'll get some peace of mind knowing that your haste didn't stick you with a problem house.

Whole house inspections, condo inspections, radon testing, mold testing, and more, we do it all for you. Call or E-mail today to schedule your Complete Home Inspection, 913-268-0222, www.completehomeinspectionkc.com.
