Why Do I Need A Home Inspection?
When you purchase a house without a professional inspection first, you essentially buy the home “as is”. Even experienced homeowners should view the home inspection as an investment into their home. You don’t want to be caught off guard with unexpected issues and a home inspection will help you avoid that. By hiring a professional home inspector, you’re assuming that you will understand any issues that are beyond what can be seen at surface level. Many problems can be pointed out early and by having a professional and objective opinion, you are assuring that you are informed during the purchasing process. A good home inspector should examine heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing systems for any signs of potential trouble. At the end of the day, not having a home inspection before buying just is not worth the risk. Being informed about your biggest investment is worth the small fee you’ll pay of for a licensed and qualified home inspector.
In short, getting an inspection done is the BEST way you can protect your biggest investment.
