It's so important to see what a licensed inspector has to say of the house. At The Cole Team, we have a list of trusted inspectors you can use!

However, there are a few myths and misconceptions we hear regarding home inspections.

1. Pass/Fail
An inspector does not pass or fail a home on the inspection. The home inspector's job is to give you a closer look at any issues they might've found while inspecting the home. Once they send you the report on the defects found in the home, it's up to you to decide whether to move forward with the deal or to cancel.

Is owning your first home within reach?

When you start looking for a home are you going to be a first time home buyer? If you are have you ever thought that maybe owning your own home wasn't within your reach? If you have, you are not the only one to feel that way! According to the National Association of Realtors' most "older millennials" also feel that same way.

Based on a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors the largest group of first time homebuyers is people aged 25 - 36 (Older Millennials) right now in the us. With the median age being 32 years old. More and more "older millennials" are realizing that their dream of homeownership is actually within their reach right now!
