Home Buyers: How to Avoid Paying Too Much for Your Laguna Woods, Palmia or Casta del Sol Home

In my experience, spending a few hundred dollars on a professional home inspection is the best investment you’ll ever make. A professional inspector brings experience in examining a great many homes, good evaluation standards and an unbiased perspective. And a written report can be an excellent negotiating tool. Make sure you accompany your inspector on the tour. You’ll learn a lot about the home you’re thinking of buying.

Once you have your evaluation, the decision to proceed is yours. A home inspector only gives you a professional opinion of the home’s condition, not advice as to whether or not you should buy that Laguna Woods, Palmia, Casta del Sol, Laguna Woods Village or other Active Adult 55+ Community property.

This is Tip 10 of a series of 24. Watch Melanie Callahan's blog for upcoming helpful tips on how to maximize your return on investment when you do buy (and later, sell) your Laguna Woods, Palmia, Laguna Woods Village or Casta del Sol home.
