Buying a house is an emotional process. It can be a very anxious time as well. But it’s important that you don’t rush and make sure that you carry out your due diligence just the same. After all, it’s likely the single biggest purchase of your life.
Allow plenty of time and take a critical look at your potential dream home. For example:
- visit the property on as many occasions as you can, preferably at different times of the day
- talk with neighbours
- do as much research on the property as you can
- consider what important questions you need to ask
- make your “offer to purchase” conditional on having the house inspected and attend that inspection
We find clients don’t like to be put in a position where they must make significant decisions on the spot or in a rush at the end of an inspection. Take at least 24 hours to digest what happened at the inspection and review your report in detail, fully mindful that you’re likely making one of the largest investments in your life.
Reduce anxiety…slow down, don’t rush & make a wise buying decision knowing an inspection will help provide peace of mind!
