Why do I need a home inspection?
The main purpose of a home inspection is to give you the information needed to make an informed decision about the property you will be purchasing. It is important to conduct a home inspection to avoid a costly mistake by purchasing a property in need of major repairs. Our quality home inspection is an inexpensive way to discover the overall condition of a home and its systems.
Here are 7 good reasons why you should get a home inspection
- Estimate Future Costs
Our home inspectors will approximate the installation age of appliances and major systems in the home like plumbing, heating and cooling, and water heaters. They can diagnose the current condition of the structure itself, and tell you how long finishes have been in the home. All components in the home have a “life span.” Knowing when they may require replacement can help you make important financial decisions.
- Simplifying decision
Our home inspection can help you determine how much additional money and effort you are willing to spend to make the home satisfactory for your needs.
- Negotiating cost
Our home inspection report provides you an opportunity to ask for repairs or request a price reduction or credit from the seller. Your realtor will work with you to understand what requests can be made to negotiate a better deal.
- Protecting Your Investment
Our home inspectors can suggest tips on how to maintain your home, and ultimately save you hundreds of dollars over time.
Our home inspection can detect safety issues like recalled electrical panels, faulty wiring, excessive biological growth and missing smoke detectors.
- The report allows you an “out”
If you are not comfortable with the findings of the home inspection or feel there are too many defects, the report usually allows you to back out of your offer to buy.
- Obtaining insurance
Almost all insurance companies will not insure a home without a Wind Mitigation in the homeowner’s name. Some homes will require both a wind mitigation and a four-point inspection. All our home inspectors are licensed and certified to perform both inspections. We can complete the inspection at the same as your home inspection and save you time and money.
Our home inspection reports make you aware of what repairs and maintenance the home may require immediately, and over time.
NO WAITING! (Important when contingency time is short).
