In red hot markets, many are foregoing home inspections in a bid to quickly close on competitive properties. Do you make sure to use inspections? Let us know in our poll today

    We have come to the point that buyers are nkt asked if they would like to have an inspection done. They are a given a form to sign that they waive their right to the inspection condition because they will not stand a chance to buy the property. Many new immigrants and foreign investor don't have a clue about construction in Canada or even that there us such a thing as a Home Inspection. Home Inspections need to become Mandatory in all Real Estate transactions.

    I normally suggest that buyers do a pre-offer home inspection. It's better to forego the cost of the inspection than possibly find out that there are bigger rectification expenses later on. It's also a good idea for sellers to have a pre-listing home inspection done. That would also encourage more buyer prospects and maintain transparency.
