Some States and communities require sellers to provide a property condition disclosure document to the buyer revealing what they know to be defects in their home, your real
estate agent should obtain a copy of this disclosure for you. Although these disclosures are useful, they are useful only to the extent that they are honestly executed; in addition, although most
sellers may be aware of very obvious defects, they cannot be expected to be aware of subtle, and possibly costly, defects that a home inspection engineer may uncover. Therefore, choosing the services
of a qualified home inspector is a very important decision that you will need to make. Don’t wait until your bid is accepted to make your choice. Smart home buyers do their homework beforehand
and conduct their interviews before they begin their house hunt.
