What is the purpose of a Home Inspection?
Many people misunderstand the purpose of a home inspection.
Home inspections are an instrumental part of the home buying process that can save you a lot of time and money in the long run.
Here are some great reasons to have a home inspection before you buy:
1.Don’t Judge a Home by Its Facade
Especially for those buying newer construction, a home inspection may feel like a waste of money. No matter the age of the home, there can be costly troubles unknown to the average buyer. Problems with wiring, plumbing or structural issues may not be visible during a showing and you’ll want to get an expert opinion.
2. Save Money
Home inspection costs vary depending on size and age of the home. Those who skip out on the expense may realize in a few years that an inspection is much cheaper than rewiring the entire house.
3.Know What You’re Buying
In the end the most important reason to have a home inspection before you buy is to really know what you’re buying. Research your potential home like you would any other major purchase. The more you know, the fewer surprises there will be down the road. Home inspectors can help you make a decision based on your current budget as well as your future time and money investment.
