One question home buyers can ask themselves is this: Is it better to purchase a pre-owned or a brand new house or condominium? If you are a potential home buyer, you might think that it is better to get one that is newly constructed. In fact, more than one out of five home buyers would agree with you. This is because a newly constructed house is in perfect condition. Well, in theory. Although there can be more defects in a pre-owned house, a newly-constructed property can have many as well. Because of this, it is important to get a home inspector to conduct the necessary evaluation and assessment of the house that you want to buy.

Conducting a home inspection will allow you as a buyer to deal with the issues even before you purchase the house. This will save you money as well as time when you have finally moved in. Here are the things you need to look at and ask for when a home inspection is conducted. Once you have seen and evaluated the following things, you can ask the seller to conduct the necessary repairs and adjust the selling price.

Also, during the inspection, you can choose to go with the home inspector so that you get to be more familiar with your potential house. This way, you will know what areas need attention and what items need to be repaired even before you move in.

• The mechanical and electrical systems of the house are properly running.
• Vents are properly installed.
• Both the cooling and heating systems are working well.
• There is enough insulation in the house.

Basically, there are two home inspections that are performed as you buy a house. The first one takes place before the house is sold. This is the time when it is already vacated and is ready for occupancy. This would give you information about your new house.

Moreover, you can use the home inspection report as a basis for the final price set by the seller. The second inspection is done once the foreclosure is already final. This is the time when the property is put up to be auctioned.

Typically, the inspection is more extensive and will provide you with all the necessary information you would need before you make the purchase. Also, when you have already purchased the property, you will easily be able to conduct the necessary repairs and other adjustments.
