But what happens when the inspection exposes big trouble?
What if Your Home Inspection Turns Up Major Problems With the Home?
If your home inspector finds big problems (or small problems, which are also typically included in the home inspection contingency in your real estate purchase contract), you have a couple of options.
You can ask the seller to fix the issues, ask them to accept a lower offer because you’ll have to pay for the fixes, or walk away from the deal.
What Are “Major” Problems With a Home?
The bottom line is that if a problem makes you question your decision to buy a home, it’s a major problem.
You can accompany your home inspector through the home, and you can ask questions along the way. You can also keep an eye out for issues that you might be able to spot on your own, like:
- Sagging floors
- Cracks in the walls
- Roof issues
- Drainage problems
- Structural problems, which you may be able to notice when windows or doors don’t shut quite right
- Bad plumbing
