Why do I need a home inspection?

Purchasing a home can be a long and stressful process. When you are so close to the finish line and getting your home is within your grasp, you may ask yourself if a home inspection is worth the time and money. When you get a professional to conduct a home inspection you’re not only reducing the risks associated with your purchase, but you will have the peace of mind knowing that there will be no unexpected costs creeping up.

Understand the True Costs

Purchasing a house is an investment. You are either investing in a new home for your family for years to come, or you are looking for a positive return years down the road. When you have a professional inspect your home, they should be checking all aspects of the home’s structure, electrical work, plumbing, roof, interior and exterior. Our home specialists have inspected thousands of homes over the course of 15 years so they know what to look for. When a problem is identified we will make a note of it in our report, which we deliver to you at the end of the inspection.

Once your home inspection is finished we will give you an idea of what needs work and what is in good condition. If there is a significant problem with the electrical work in the home, it may impact your decision purchasing the property. You could end up spending much more money than you had anticipated keeping the home well maintained and safe. A home inspection reduces your risks and can give you a better picture of the future costs you will need to incur to bring your home to the standard it needs to be at.

Peace of Mind

Ultimately, a home inspection gives you peace of mind. When you have your first night in the home you do not need to lose sleep wondering if there is a leak in the roof or a shifting foundation. You will be able to manage your finances by understanding what kind of expenses are around the corner and know you purchased the home for a good price.
