Purchasing A Home

purchasing a massachusetts home

Congratulations on your decision to purchase a new home in Massachusetts! After all that recent house hunting, you've finally found your perfect dream home. It's located in the perfect location with a perfect neighborhood; it's the perfect size with all the perfect finishes, has all the perfect surroundings, and it's the perfect spot to call your own. After your viewing, you liked what you seen, so you put an offer on the property. Now that the Seller has just accepted your offer and the bank financing is now processing, You must be very excited! But wait...there's only one slight problem! You just put an offer on a house that took you approximately twenty minutes to walk through.

Did you happen to notice any major defects while you were walking through the home? You must be wondering how many major repairs are lurking in that particular home and you must be curious if you are inheriting a home that contains decades of neglected maintenance. All homes will have their defects, but in order to bring these defects to light before you decide to purchase, you must have a trained eye.

Locating those defects now is crucial because purchasing that home does not give you a money-back guarantee that a Buyer would receive with most retail purchases. There's no return policy if you're not satisfied with your recently purchased home. Once you purchase a home, you're on your own to maintain it, repair it, anticipate problems and pay all the bills. This is why it's best to know as much as you can about potential problems now, before you make the big commitment to buy.

I know you have a lot going through your mind right now, as any home buying process can be quite nerve racking. Relax, allow Massachusetts Home Inspections to give you peace of mind and help you remove the risks and anxiety of making one of the biggest investment decisions in your life. I'll make your home buying process a lot less stressful by keeping you well informed of the present conditions of your prospective home. Not only am I focused on protecting your best interests, but in providing you with expert and competent information about your new future home.

I will provide you with a quality independent perspective on the condition of the home you have chosen. Your home inspection will be an information gathering process that is intended to provide you with a better understanding of the existing property conditions. You and I will be there to learn as much as possible about the condition of the property and to jointly engage in the discovery process.

As your Certified Master Home Inspector, I will perform a detailed comprehensive visual inspection to assess the condition of the house and all of its systems. I'll help you define the maintenance required to catch little problems before they turn into expensive situations. I will review your house as a system, looking at how one component of the house might affect the operability or lifespan of another. I will determine the components that are not performing properly as well as items that are beyond their useful life or are considered unsafe. I will also identify areas where repairs may be needed or where there may have been problems in the past.

I highly recommend that you attend your home inspection. There are several reasons why it's important for you to be there. Your home inspection will provide you the opportunity to slowly and methodically view and consider the object of your investment. During the inspection, you will have hours to voice questions and concerns as you evaluate your prospective purchase with me at your side. It will also be a vast learning experience for you. I'll literally show you how every system operates and how to properly maintain them. I'll be able to educate you on an overall good home maintenance plan, so that you will learn how to preserve and protect what will likely be your largest investment of your life.

One more important home buying detail. Don't rely on the homeowner disclosure report to reveal what is wrong with your prospective home. The Seller doesn't necessarily know all the hidden problems of the house and thus can't disclose them, or maybe he/she won't be as honest as I will be. Your investment will always be my concern.

Before you invest hundreds of thousands of dollars on a home, be sure you hire a Certified Master Home Inspector to confirm that your chosen home does not contain major defects that could cost you thousands of dollars after you move in. Massachusetts Home Inspections can reduce the risk of any major surprises that may happen after you take ownership of your new home.

Hi Dave,

I just wanted to write a quick thank you for your work inspecting 43 1/2 Bartholomew Street in Peabody yesterday. As a buyer in the process of trying to purchase my first home, it's been difficult to know who to trust. I honestly cannot believe some of the stuff I've run into, so I had to write & let you know that I found you professional, competent, & all around above par. In all of the people I've had to deal with up to this point, you were one of the few that actually took the time to explain things in a way that an inexperienced first time home buyer would understand. I never once felt rushed or talked down to.

Based on your inspection, I've decided not to purchase the home at 43 1/2 Bartholomew Street. I will however, continue to look & will hopefully find a house more suited to my needs in the near future. When that happens I will be calling on your expertise once again. In the meantime, I will certainly recommend you to any of my family & friends that may need a home inspection.

Thanks again,

Lisa G.
