How To Avoid Unwelcome Surprises With A New Home Inspection
The home buying process requires a serious investment of both time and money. Once you’ve seen the available properties and think you’ve found “the one”, it can be tempting to want to move quickly through the process of actually buying the home. For some, this can mean skipping the home inspection entirely, but this mistake could end up costing you big in the long run.
Why You Need a Licensed Inspector
While it can be tempting to think that looking over the home yourself is good enough, you’re likely not qualified or knowledgeable enough to truly catch all of the potential issues. As a buyer, it’s important to invest in a qualified home inspector with the expertise and experience to truly gauge the state of your home’s many complicated systems. Unless you’re a contractor or inspector yourself, the average person just isn’t capable of evaluating the health of a home.

Electrical, plumbing, roofing, air conditioning, and the legal codes that your home must meet, are just a few of the things that a licensed home inspector is capable of scrutinizing. By hiring your own licensed and experienced home inspector, you’ll have the confidence that there’s an unbiased expert on your side who knows what to look for.

What to Expect From Your Inspector
A typical inspection will cover every aspect of your potential home, from top to bottom. The inspector will physically access as much of the home as they can, and take photographs to document their findings. This thorough inspection will allow them to give you detailed feedback on the home. In many cases, inspectors can help you differentiate between which issues are easily solved on your own, and which will require you to seek out a professional. Knowing this can help you determine the additional investment the home may need after purchasing. The detailed knowledge of potential issues, big and small, will empower you at the bargaining table and help you enter home ownership fully prepared.

A home inspection is a worthwhile investment that will provide your family with a sense of security and peace of mind. There’s nothing worse than devoting time and money to a home, only to realize that there were hidden issues you can’t afford to fix.
