A Home Inspection: Peace of Mind Guaranteed

When you are looking at buying a home, you can be up to your eyeballs in decisions and caught up with all the areas needing your undivided attention.  The process, as a whole can be very stressful, not to mention emotional. It’s this onslaught of emotions that possibly the most important decision can be easily or simply forgotten about. What is “most important decision,” it’s the service of a home inspection. One of the most powerful weapons in your buying armory.

The reason that a home inspection is so beneficial and powerful is that it is the only service where a qualified inspector examines closely the structure of the home in question. They then report on all the working and operating components giving an accurate evaluation and life span of each.

There is no need to be rushing through the closing of the home you want to buy. It is not recommended to make such a large investment without having a trained professional inspector give the “all clear” or highlight points that need immediate attention.

The inspector, once he or she has evaluated the property will hand you a completed report of everything that has been inspected. The results can then be used to communicate with the the seller about whether they are willing to foot the cost of repairs or reduce the asking price. (This of course works only if the home is not being sold AS-IS). It does allow you the funds to buy the home and cover the repair costs that are needed if they are willing to lower the asking price.

Many people see a home inspection service as an added cost and that they don’t need to add onto the overall cost of purchasing the home. It is true,  an inspection is an added cost, but it’s an added cost you can’t afford to ignore.

The difference between you hiring a home inspection service is years of happy memories or years of constant builder’s fees and unending repairs, all which could have been avoided if a home inspection had been carried out previous to the signing the contract on that home.

As the seller, this should motivate you to get the repairs done before the house is put on the market.

These are just a few of the components that will be checked for safety and functionality. Having this inspection report done will allow you, as the seller, to either decide to get the builders in and go ahead with the repairs or reassess the asking price and drop it. This will allow the prospective buyers to decide if they want to have the repairs done themselves.
