Skipping Home Inspections - Is it a risk you're willing to take?

In a red-hot real estate market, the opportunity to have an inspection completed prior to purchasing a home is extremely rare.


When sellers are receiving multiple offers, over asking price, the chance of them accepting an offer that is subject to a home inspection is slim to none.


Home inspectors in Ontario are pushing for legislation to regulate the industry in an attempt to protect homeowners


In today's frenzied market, buyers have a better chance of getting a house without any conditions, including getting an inspection, adding to the pressure of the market, and the rush to make a purchase is forcing people to make poor decisions.


Buying a home is one of the most expensive purchases many of us will make throughout our lives, and we need to take care of our investments, our finances, and our families.


Inspectors are finding more and more new home buyers, having a post-purchase inspection completed where they find numerous unexpected, potentially hazardous, and expensive issues brought to their attention.


If you’ve put all your savings into your new home, it could be very problematic to find out that you now need to invest more money into it.


Whether you’re buying your first home or your tenth investment property, speak with your agent about the risks of not having a home inspection done and how they can assist with this process.


A skilled agent will have plenty of great suggestions for you!
