What Is A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is a comprehensive, non-invasive and visual inspection of a home's exterior and interior components. Your inspector will evaluate the condition of 100+ different components on your property.
Why Should I Get A Home Inspection?
A home inspection is an integral part of your home purchase. This may be the largest investment you will ever make throughout your life, why wouldn't you want to know the homes condition? Much of the stress associated with your home-buying experience is not knowing if you're making a sound financial decision. Many homeowners quickly realize after they move in to their dream home, that it is more of a nightmare. Discovering many safety issues or defects after moving into your home means that the repairs and costs associated with the defective components are now your responsibility.
Often times, this leads to "buyers regret" and sometimes even financial failures. If you had purchased a home inspection (typically costing less than .1% of your purchase price) these defects would more than likely have been discovered and possibly fixed by the homeowner or sellers.
