In this month's home inspection picture we see that the electrician... missed the junction box somehow. Those wires should be spliced inside that metal box. In addition to that, he spliced copper and aluminum wires - very dangerous in this situation. Let's just say tis was not a pretty home inspection report...
Home Inspections - It can easily be said that a home inspections are one of the most important aspects of a real estate transaction. Knowing how important home inspections are makes me wonder why they are still "optional" here in NYS.
Whenever the real estate market picks up, and people get into bidding wars, one of the things that happen is buyers start to waive their home inspections to make their offer seem more appealing to a seller holding 3 offers. But is that wise? Of course not.
Even the home of your dreams can quickly become a nightmare without a home inspection. Issue that we may not see can come up later on. A home inspection is also an objective view - no emotions attached. And let's face it, when we are buying a home their are emotions in play that can affect our thinking, and maybe even make us overlook certain issues.
So no matter what your circumstances are, never skip your home inspection!
