If you have a real estate agent assisting you with purchasing a residential or commercial property, they will usually strongly encourage you to have a real estate inspection completed prior to closing. If you are handling a real estate investment on your own, you might not get the reminder to do this, but it is no less important that you do. Real estate inspections give you the chance to learn as much about the structure as possible. If a problem is found, you still have the chance to renegotiate with the seller or walk away from the deal.
One thing that even a real estate agent might not mention to you is that there are different types of real estate inspections. While you can go the route of a standard home inspector or commercial property inspector, it isn’t a bad idea to call in professionals for some of the more critical concerns. For example, if you want complete peace of mind, consider a roofing inspection, electrical inspection, plumbing inspection, and HVAC inspection, and have an exterminator provide a Wood Destroying Insect Report (WDIR). These various real estate inspections will give you a comprehensive and detailed view of the home or commercial property you are purchasing so that you don’t face any number of costly repairs that drain your wallet.
