A home is the biggest purchase most people will ever make, and a home inspection is always recommended before buying a home. It’s important to realize the condition of your investment. While some little quirks may be nothing to worry about, there may be more serious issues that only a professional home inspector can assess.
It’s important to have a home inspection prior to buying a home, or sometimes before even making an offer. Without a comprehensive home inspection, you could end up paying thousands of dollars in repairs, or buying a house that is unsafe due to water damage, foundation issues, or even asbestos and lead. It’s important to hire a professional home inspector to check out your potential new home.
A certified home inspection should cover the foundation, lot, roof, exterior, attic, interior, basement, electrical, plumbing, appliances, and the heating/cooling system.
