You're likely aware of how important it is to request a home inspection when buying any type of Bluffton real estate. Although you don't need to purchase a home inspection, the price you pay upfront may become a moot point in the long run when you end saving thousands of dollars thanks to the careful eye of an inspector.
Speaking of which, Bluffton real estate home inspectors are trained to spot problems but since no one is perfect even they might overlook a few things. For example, leaky roofs are the number one overlooked items during a home inspection. The reasoning behind this is simple: inspectors don't generally climb onto the roof to check for leakage, all observations are done from the ground level using binoculars or by looking out from a window on a higher floor. Because of this, you may wish to consider hiring a licensed roofing contractor to give you a thorough evaluation.
Other items that are commonly overlooked include faulty appliances and problems with heating, ventilation and air conditioning. While you may never run into these problems during your Hilton Head real estate search, it's important to be aware of them considering how costly such repairs can be.
