Is a Condo Inspection Really Necessary

By Mike in Home Buying with 0 Comments

Importance of Condo Inspections

There are many reasons to buy a luxury condo in Downtown San Diego. Many are beautifully designed, centrally located, and are within condo buildings with fantastic amenities. However, before buying a Downtown San Diego condo, you should know what a condo inspection is and how it can help you.

What is a Condo Inspection?

A condo inspection is very similar to a home inspection or the inspection of any other building that is for sale. It is ordered either by the buyer or the seller of the condo, and it consists of a thorough examination of the unit that will be purchased. The inspection will cover:

  • Heating
  • Electrical
  • Plumbing, including toilets and all drains
  • Interior structure, such as the windows, walls, floors, and doors
  • Ducts and vents

Why Consider a Condo Inspection

The short answer to the question of “Should I get a condo inspection?” is a resounding yes. A thorough condo inspection will provide you with recommendations as to what you will need to update and approximately when. This will give you insight as to what condition your potential new home is in.  Identifying any current or potential issues through an inspection will provide you with an opportunity to determine if you would like to move forward with the purchase or ask for certain contingencies from the seller.

Many Downtown San Diego condos, especially those that are up for sale, are made to look glamorous and inviting. It is worth the small hassle of calling in an expert who can look past the appearance to the functionality and safety of the building.
