Why is a home inspection important?
Home Buyers: Most buyers find it difficult to remain objective and unemotional about the house they really want, and this may affect their judgment. To obtain the most accurate information about the condition of a home, always get an impartial third-party opinion from an expert in the field of home inspection.
Home Sellers: Why wait for a buyer’s home inspection to uncover hidden problems after you have already accepted an offer? This could cost you thousands in a lower negotiated selling price. More often sellers are choosing to have a thorough home inspection when listing their home to help identify critical areas of concern up front. This will help you to decide whether to perform repairs or disclose the concerns during negotiations
What if the report reveals problems?
No house is perfect. When the inspector identifies problems, it does not indicate you should not buy the house. His findings serve to educate you in advance of the purchase about the condition of the property. If your budget is tight or if you do not want to be involved in future repair work, this information will be extremely valuable. A seller may adjust the purchase price or contract terms if major problems are discovered during an inspection.
Can't I do the inspection myself?
Even the most experienced homeowner lacks the knowledge and expertise of a professional home inspector. A professional home inspector has the experience, depth of knowledge and training to make an unbiased and informed report of the condition of a property. An inspector is familiar with the many elements of home construction, their proper installation and maintenance. An inspector understands how the home’s systems and components are intended to function together, as well as how and why they fail. He knows what to look for and is uniquely suited to interpret what his findings reveal about the condition of the property.
Should I attend the home inspection?
While it is not necessary for you to be present, it is recommended that you make time to join the inspector on his visit. This allows you to observe the inspector, ask questions as you learn about the condition of the home, how its systems work, and how to maintain them. After you have seen the property with the inspector, you will find the written report easier to understand.
