How important is a home inspection?

Most people understand the value and importance of hiring a professional home inspector to carry out an inspection on the home they are looking to buy. Statistics show that between 70% - 90% of all homes that were sold in previous years all had a professional home inspection service carried out on them before the buyer actually agreed to purchase the property.

The other percentage must have thought the service didn’t hold any value or they thought they could do the job of a trained inspector on his or her own! Wonder if the other percent are regretting that decision now in their purchased home.

Could have done with a home inspection

In any case, it’s the better decision to elect setting up a home inspection and asking a trained expert, with years of inspection experience, to look over that new home purchase is not a bad idea! Having a fully-detailed report highlighting the inspector’s findings helps buyers account for any extra costs in repairs before the sales final. This gives buyers the ability to make an informed decision regarding the home.

Regardless if the home is just built, it is still a very good idea to get it inspected, as there are always faults of some sort that need attention. When desiring to hire a home inspection company make sure that to research and check out plenty of companies. Look for a company who is both courteous and provides highly trained inspectors, is a great place to begin.

In some cases, the property may need to be checked for Radon, mold, and termite infestation or damage. Most professional companies can offer these speciality services as cost, but is it possible to place a price tag on safety and wellbeing of family? A home inspection is a great way to make sure that the financial decision you are looking to make is the right one and a safe one.
