One of the most important things you can do when buying a Louisville home is to have it inspected before you agree to purchase it because, a home inspection can literally save you thousands of dollars and the hassle of buying a home which may be more trouble than it’s worth.

In today’s post we will provide you with 3 home inspection mistakes and how you can easily avoid them.

Tip 1 – You Didn’t Have That New Home Inspected

Just because you may be planning on buying a new home that doesn’t mean you should not have it inspected.

Many times there may be problems with a home which may just beginning to appear under the surface and you will never see these problems yourself unless you hire a home inspector to thoroughly inspect the home before you agree to purchase it.

Tip 2 – You Chose A Home Inspector for the Wrong Reasons

Although it’s easy to choose a home inspector during the age of the Internet, you want to make sure that you’re choosing someone who is competent, reliable and trustworthy. This is done by reviewing a home inspectors profile on the Better Business Bureau website, reading their feedback online and doing your due diligence to make sure that the home inspector you hire is someone who is really trustworthy and legit.

Tip 3 – You Didn’t Comply With the Home Inspection

Last of all, one of the biggest mistakes any home buyer can make with the home inspection is not complying or going along with the home inspection.

Never underestimate the serious nature of a home inspection report, you want to take into account everything your home inspector has reported and get those problem areas fixed since it’s easy to let a small problem grow out of control and into a bigger problem.
