Benefits of Having a Home Inspection


Reduce your buying risk substantially.

There is a considerable risk associated with every home or real estate purchase , whether resale or new construction. Having a home inspection can help having a complete understanding of the structure and main systems/components of the home.

Limiting the unexpected surprises once you move in the home.

Once you have invested your life savings into a home, you won’t want to find out a short time later that a heating system will require replacement, the roof covering is too old to last another year, the crawlspace is full of mold, etc. These can be very costly issues to correct and you’ll want to know them before you buy the home .

Have a better understanding of what the home is worth to you and how much of your money should be invested in the property.

You’ll need to have someone knowledgeable in all the major residential systems and who has no other interests in the sale home .A home inspector who is not properly trained, experienced,  or a home inspector who benefits from the sale of the home, may not be your best choice for accurate and objective information.

A chance to discuss the home and its features in an unbiased manner.

The professional home inspector’s only concern in the process is providing the client with accurate and useful information. 

Access to a professional home inspector who has a wealth of information about all the major systems in your home.

During the inspection, time is often devoted to explaining to the client how a certain system works or should work. This is an excellent time for you to ask questions, gather important information, and learn first hand about concerns important to you.

You get an objective view of the home.

Home buyers can often become overwhelmed with cosmetic features of a home; possibly how close it is to the school or church, maybe what the children rooms will look like, or how big the lot size is, and so forth.
A qualifed home inspector will encourage you to look much deeper and beyond the surface impressions. Your impressions are of course important but it is the inspector’s job to provide a greater depth of important and/or relevant information. Only then can you truly make an informed buying decision.

Your home inspection can potentially save you thousands of dollars.

By having a greater knowledge of the condition and functioning of the prospective home before the purchase, the buyer is in a much better position to decide on the value of the home and how well it will suit they needs and expectations. After the inspection, the client has a better understanding of what expenses they might reasonably incur in the near future

PEACE OF MIND!  You’re a smart home buyer, and smart home buyers know that a home inspection is priceless!
