As anyone who has ever purchased a used car will tell you, looks can be deceiving. To get a true picture of the quality of the product, you have to “look under the hood.”
What does this have to do with shopping for a new home?
When you find a property you like on the market, it’s easy to fall in love with its appearance and features. However, there may be issues you won’t notice, such as foundation cracks that need repair or a furnace that’s due for replacement.
That’s why you need to “look under the hood” by having a qualified home inspector review the property.
