Though you may have found your perfect home, it’s now time to step back and let reason override your emotions. This is not to say you haven’t actually found your perfect home, but we just want to make sure that you perform due diligence and make sure that the wrapper isn’t hiding any unexpected presents underneath.

In order to make sure the wrapper matches the present inside, we need to order and attend a home inspection. Let a professional inspect the property and check for things that may result in structural damage, such as:

  • Water damage
  • Shifting ground
  • Poor construction
