There are a lot of steps to buying a home. If you’re a first-time buyer, it makes sense to get input from as many people as possible. Your realtor can serve as your main source of information when it comes to your home inspection. The home inspector should not only survey the home for big issues such as electrical or foundation problems but also for any minor details that could be deal-breakers for you. Your realtor can walk you through what those details should be so that you can make the best decision possible. You may not be able to get the seller to pay for the repairs, but you can use the information to move onto a home that’s a better fit for you.
Realtors know the home-buying process well. If they don’t have the answer, they can point you to someone who does!
