It is important to understand home inspection basics when buying Highlands NC real estate. Home inspections are an integral part of the purchase process and should always be a contingency in a contract, unless perhaps a home is expected to be torn down. Even in instances when a home is being sold as-is there should be an inspection, allowing the buyer to know the exact condition of the Highlands home for sale and giving the buyer an out in the case the home is a total disaster.
Your Highlands REALTOR will be instrumental in helping you pick out a reputable home inspector. This process will be easier if you know what to expect. A home inspection will cover the basics, including foundation, structural, electrical, plumbing, and HVAC. The inspection will not cover cosmetic flaws. In addition, an inspector will not make repairs. It is wise to be present at the inspection so that you may ask questions. In the end a report will be given to you, the buyer, and from there you can decide what is important and what is not.
