The Benefits Of A Home Inspection

Why Do You Need A Home Inspection?

While the house may look great to the potential buyer, there are often hidden problems that even the seller may not know about, let alone be able to reveal.  Considering the long-term investment a home buyer is making, having a home inspection before purchasing is reassurance that you are not going to have unexpected additional costs after moving.   If you find an inspector that will provide an absolutely thorough inspection, you will receive a report on the condition of hard-to-see areas, such as the roof covering, attic, plumbing, heating and cooling, fireplace and chimney, the basement/crawlspace/foundation, and electrical in addition to the interior and exterior of the home.  A section-by-section systematic inspection and reporting process is designed to insure that nothing is overlooked.  Attention to detail will not only reveal any major problems, but will also identify minor concerns so you can make improvements as needed.

Consider the benefits of a home inspection performed by a thorough inspector.  For the home buyer:

  1. It will provide you peace of mind by helping you make an informed home buying decision.
  2. It will reveal any needs for repairs or replacements before you buy.
  3. It will help limit the number of surprises you will discover after you move in.
  4. It will give you invaluable details about your new home.

And for the home seller:

  1. It will provide the opportunity to become aware of and repair property conditions which make your house more marketable and attractive to buyers.
  2. It will help eliminate last minute repair hassles that could delay closing.
