Buying a new home is exhilarating. It is easy to get caught up in the excitement. But after you have found your home and have it under contract, it's time to step back, slow down, breathe, and start your due diligence. To that end, there is nothing more important than hiring a quality home inspector.

No house is perfect, not even a brand-new one. Every home is made up of approximately 25,000 different parts – including mechanical features such as pressurized water, electricity, and gas – and the condition changes daily. Consider the home inspection an investment in both the purchase and as the owner. Use your home inspection to:

  • Judge the home's current condition.

  • Negotiate with the seller either to do repairs or to provide a discount on the home. Solid facts about the quality and condition of the home can give you valuable bargaining power.

  • Don’t lose it or misplace it – keep it as reference guide. Within every home inspection are details about the condition of the home and its features. These details provide clues to what will need to be maintained or replaced and when. With this information, you can plan and save money. Majordomo can help you with this ().

  • Send it to Majordomo so we can prepare your Domoreport. Your Domoreport will include a summary of the repairs, project estimates, project details, sortable results, and more. .

The reason to invest in a home inspection before you close the sale is to know what you are buying. The more you know, the fewer surprises there will be down the road.
