We provide you with a wealth of information, explained through descriptions and detailed photographs, so that you can make an informed decision.
Why Are Home Inspections So Important?
Your home is one of the biggest investments you will ever make. Therefore, it’s crucial to know what you’re getting in to before you make a purchase. What if you purchase a home and then find out it needs major repairs? This could cost you thousands of dollars, not to mention time and a huge headache. Additionally, our home inspections provide:
Home inspections often reveal problems that could be pricy to fix. This could be used as a good tool in negotiating purchases with the seller.
Inspectors can check for problems that could be potentially dangerous to you and your family: like clumsily installed wiring, or high levels of radon.
Your home is one of your most valuable possessions and should be treated as such. An experienced home inspector can provide you with the necessary information to keep your house in excellent condition.
Is a Home Inspection Worth the Investment?
Ask yourself this: “If I don’t invest in a home inspection, I could save a couple hundred dollars, but how much would it cost me in the future?“ Our average home inspection points out flaws that cost between $500 to as high as $70,000 worth of repair work! Yes, you read that correctly: $500 to $70,000. This could be negotiated with the seller, but could have been overlooked if no home inspections were conducted before the sale. Therefore, the inspection typically costs you nothing, instead it saves you money almost every time. We’ll point out problems with plumbing, insulation, shabbily installed electrical wiring, broken furnaces, leaking roofs….the list goes on. Wouldn’t it be great to be aware of these while you still have an upper hand so that you can negotiate a better deal with the seller? You would be familiar with both the inside and outside of the property before you make a purchase decision, and we would provide you with facts on:
- Walkways, driveways, and garage doors
