What is a Home Inspection Report and do I need one?

A Home Inspection Report can be used by a qualified buyer or a property owner to verify the condition of the property prior to being bought or sold. Those conducting home inspection reports are not required to be licensed and they are not regulated by a governing body other than the general consumer protection legislation.

Qualified home buyers are not required to have a home inspection done, but it is recommended to ensure the property is a sound investment. In order to get an accurate report, ask for the resume of the inspector and check references if possible. The report should contain details specific to issues or problems with the property and include the cost to repair these items.

To learn more about Hiring a Home Inspector search our website or call one of our Alberta agents for a list of inspectors. We will assist you and answer any questions you may have.

Hiring a Home Inspector

Hire a Home Inspector Before Buying a House

It's often said that one of the most expensive and important purchases you will ever make will be your home. However, unlike the guarantee a buyer receives with most purchases, there's no money-back guarantee or return policy if you're not satisfied with your recently purchased home.

Once you buy a home, you're on your own to maintain it, repair it, anticipate problems and pay the bills. This is why it's best to know as much as you can about potential problems before you make the commitment to buy. Learn More

What is a Mortgage Broker?

Mortgage Broker Question

Simply stated, a mortgage broker is an agent for lenders in much the same way an insurance broker is an agent for insurance companies.

Mortgage brokers act as agents for banks, trust companies, credit unions, mortgage corporations, investment corporations, finance companies and individual private investors.

Mortgage brokers are trained professionals that have to meet a satisfactory educational requirement before they may become registered. As such, this requirement ensures you are being provided with a duty of care, a working knowledge of mortgage products and a standard of service to meet individual needs.

Don't Forget About Home Insurance

Protect Your Investment With Home Insurance

There are so many details and steps in the process when buying a new home, but do not forget about protecting your investment once the deal is done. When you go to meet with your insurance broker, take the following information with you to ensure that you get the proper insurance for your new home:

  • Property appraisal
  • House plans and other property details
  • Past insurance history
  • Personal information (such as identification, age, occupation, etc.)
