Chicago Real Estate
things to consider before buying or selling
As a real estate broker, one of many things I suggest before a seller decides to list their home is to get a General Home Inspection. A general home inspection in Chicago can cost as little as $200 and as high as $600 depending on size of the house, extras, and inspector/company that is used.
Once your house/condo is inspected the inspector is going to give you a report on what they find that can be a concern or if there is any alarming concerns at all.
That report is super important for 2 reasons in my opinion:
It’s like buying a used car with no history. Show me the CarFax!
Show Me The House Facts!
General Home Inspection usually consists of:
“The standard home inspector’s report will cover the condition of the home’s heating system; central air conditioning system (temperature permitting); interior plumbing and electrical systems; the roof, attic and visible insulation; walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors; the foundation, basement and structural components.” American Society of Home Inspectors
