Is it Wise to Ignore the Opportunity to Hiring a Home Inspection Service?

Anybody that has been through the homebuying process will tell you it can be an extremely stressful and a testing time. There are a number of important factors that need considered when buying a home, such as location, pricing, and the current condition of the structure. Another factor is the life expectancy of major systems in the home.

You need to be certain what you finally choose is the best investment that you can take. The best way to determine that is with a pre-purchase inspection report.

A professional home inspection should be an unbiased, detailed report of the home’s true condition. As a homebuyer, you need reassurance and a trained inspector’s advice can help bring that assurance you need.

Home evaluations can take anything up to 3 hours, and in some cases longer, it depends on the age, location, and size of the property. It is highly recommended that when the walkthrough takes place you attend it with the inspector.

Advantages of attending the walkthrough…

  • 1.      You will be able to see the true condition of the property first-hand.


  • 2.      You will be able to ask any questions that come to mind. (Remember to ask as many questions as you can because it’s the inspectors job to explain the answer.)

It is important to understand that a home inspector’s job is not just to point out and highlight the negative factors of any property that is inspected. It is also the home inspector’s job to promote and highlight the positive attributes.

A home inspection is a very valuable service, but it is sometimes ignored and overlooked. Many people see is as an added cost and too much of an extra strain on an already tight budget. The truth is, by avoiding or ignoring a home inspection service you are stepping out in blind faith. When it comes to providing a roof over your head, and providing your family with a safe home, you can’t afford not to hire a home inspector!
