The Value of a Home Inspection
When you’re purchasing a new home, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the expenses. In addition to financing your home, you also have to consider utilities’ hookups, moving truck rental, termite inspections, closing costs, and, of course, the home inspection. Even though it might be tempting to forego the inspection to save some cash, don’t do it. The home inspection is too valuable.
Buying a home is an investment in your future, and an inspection is your tool to protect that investment. During a home inspection, our team takes a look at the property’s foundation, roof, structural components (both interior and exterior), home systems (HVAC, electrical, etc.), kitchen appliances, insulation, and more. If you skipped the home inspection and one of these items were faulty, you could be looking at thousands of dollars in unplanned repairs.
A home inspection tries to catch these issues prior to the final purchase. That way, if we find any concerns with these major home components, we’ll list them out in detail in our inspection report that goes both to you and the seller. Then, you can decide whether to proceed with your existing contract, amend the contract to account for repairs, or walk away. So while the home inspection will cost up front, it’s well worth the peace of mind and knowledge of the home’s condition.
