Do I need a home inspection?
The answer is yes. Skipping an inspection can lead to the purchase of a home with hidden problems that could potentially cost you a lot of time and money. Below are the highlights of why getting a licensed home inspection is critical before you buy or sell a home.
Selling a home
If you’re selling a home, getting a pre-listing home inspection allows you to be aware of any problems beforehand. As such, you can save time by addressing needed repairs and accurately price your home for the market. Informing your buyers about the condition of the property and any recent repairs you’ve made demonstrates you’re being upfront and honest.
Buying a home
One simply cannot see problems below the surface when conducting a walk-through of a home. Hiring a licensed home inspector gives you the ability to uncover potential problems before you make a purchase decision. Based on the findings of the home inspection, you can then decide if the home is properly priced or if you want to ask for repairs to be included in the cost of the sale.
Last, but not least, it is much easier to repair issues before you move into your new home and avoid inconveniences such as noise and dust. Once your home inspection is complete, you can then schedule repairs to be handled prior to move in day.
