There are several common mistakes to avoid in the home buying process in San Diego. Some of these mistakes are common amongst all home buyers while some are unique to first time buyers and some are unique to trade-up buyers. One of the most crucial is skipping house inspections so call 888-282-0788 now and schedule a professional San Diego Real Estate Inspection before closing a deal.
Many buyers are tempted to skip the home inspection to save money. Certainly there are circumstances in which a home inspection may not be necessary but it is almost always a good idea to do your due diligence when it comes to buying a home.

While not getting a home inspection may save you a few hundred dollars at the time of purchase, a surprise problem or repair after you take possession could potentially cost you much more. For peace of mind, it is usually a wise idea to have the home inspected, before finalizing the purchase. When a home inspection is done by a professional home inspector the first concern is disclosing potential safety hazards, and then the condition of the structure, electrical, plumbing, roof etc.

A Pacific Beach Real Estate Inspection company featured here will cover these. Did you know that most decks and stairs that we inspect have safety issues? Did you know that most of the older homes we inspect have electrical hazards created by modifications or additions done by unqualified persons?

Did you know that many older homes have furnaces that are so old that it is likely that they can be lethal? Did you know that chimneys, especially in older homes, usually have internal defects that can result in fires or carbon monoxide poisoning? We look for all of these potential safety hazards and more when we do an inspection.

Many buyers in San Diego have questions to ask home inspectors about the structure of the home. Keep in mind home inspectors can not see into or through walls. Home inspectors can see what they can see and make a few educated guesses. Home inspectors are likely to miss hidden damages from insects, rot, water and construction defects unless obvious symptoms exist. Home inspectors who provide an answer of "I do not know" when asked the question is there hidden damages are not being evasive they are being honest.

Ask the home inspector about any of your concerns. Do not bother asking the inspector if you should buy the home, if the home is right for you, if the price is right, who has to fix what and the like. Home inspectors can answer your questions about most issues however the above questions are outside of the field of expertise of most home inspectors.

Feel free to questions the home inspector about the drainage around the exterior of the home, how to help keep your basement dryer, how to prolong the useful life of the roofing and if there are problems with the roofing and or siding. Real Estate Inspection in San Diego answer those questions all the time and can provide useful tips.

While outside ask the home inspector if there are any signs of improperly abandoned oil tanks, if there are the home inspector can advise you and your attorney how to proceed.

Obviously not everyone who owns a home is a real estate genius or property investment guru, but it is extremely beneficial to arm yourself with as much knowledge as possible before you begin the search for your first home. Naturally it is your REALTOR's (R) job to assist you in becoming well versed in these areas but in order to feel confident and empowered in your first venture into real estate it is important to ask questions, do your research and maintain preparedness at all stages of your home buying process. The best way to avoid feeling like you made the wrong decision or missed a great opportunity is to make sure you are going into the process with a firm grasp on what it means to become a home owner.

Structural concerns when selling or purchasing a home are the most costly items you can be faced with. Look closely at these areas, or ask your Real Estate Inspection to focus on these areas in a separate walk through of the home. If you aren’t sure about something you see, have a structural engineer look at it. The cost of an inspection will be well worth the peace of mind in knowing the severity and extent of the concern.
