Home Inspection

Homebuyers often debate whether to get a home inspection or not. When a buyer doesn't get a home inspection he or she is relying on the seller to disclose everything that’s wrong with the home. This is risky because some sellers won't do this and some others honestly might not know. Having a third party home inspector to evaluate the home is the best way to get an honest opinion without bias of the home owner. 

Many interested home purchasers spend time looking through a home for any defects visible to the eye. This gives a good general impression of the condition of the home but what about the foundation, framing, attic construction, insulation, ventilation, and roof conditions? These are just some of the considerations looked at in a home inspection. In addition, an inspector can warn you of issues that involve defective plumbing, firewall compliance, building settlement, leakage, general deterioration, inoperative fixtures, and more.

A home inspection is far from perfect but will give you a better understanding of the home you are purchasing before you buy it. This could save you a lot of money and potential trouble in the long run.
