Before you buy inspect the home

NACHES, Wash. - If you're in the process of buying a home, there are a few things you should look into before you close the deal.

It doesn't matter if your buying or selling it's always a good idea to check out a new home before you buy it, said Craig Garrison, owner of "Complete Home Inspection."

"What they should do is at least get some type of flyer from a home inspector that advertises different things on the back of his flyer, which are recommendations for a home buyer to do before they close."

Garrison suggests before you close the deal on your new home, make sure you ask the seller a few things. Ask the seller for any service manuals or records for the appliances that are staying in the home, ask for samples or records of paint colors used in the house, and get all the keys to locks and the remote control to the garage door opener.
