It is true, that purchasing a home or business is one of the biggest investments we make during our lifetime. It can be emotional, stressful and overwhelming at times. The good news is – you don’t have to go through it alone. Using a licensed real estate specialist that can help you find the ideal home is the first step in the process, after you have found “the one” the hard decision-making questions are to follow. Although agents may be able to provide disclosed information from the seller, they are unable to provide you with proper information on structural and technical elements of the home to ensure it is a good investment. This is why hiring not just a certified home inspector, but an inspector with years of experience that can help guide you through the importance of having a proper and thorough building inspection can afford in not only peace of mind – but safety. A licensed home inspector will provide you with a professional home inspection report and offer any assistance in understanding what was found in the home and what that means. This gives the buyer the power of knowledge if this really is the perfect home given the full understanding of what may be wrong with the building.
A buyer who has direct, accurate and certified knowledge of a home’s short-comings has several more options available to them, including but not limited to being able to negotiate repairs, have the ability to research repair costs if they would like to move forward, what the dangers are (if any) found during the home inspection and even to back out of contract if the inspection results were more than what the buyer was willing to deal with. It is just like having a coach in your corner to help you make the right decision with your home purchase. When you select a home inspector with years of experience, all of that knowledge is behind you as you move forward and they will be available to answer any questions for you post-inspection.
If you are purchasing a residential home, condo/townhouse or a commercial property, a home inspection should be a staple in your purchase process. If you are obtaining a mortgage for your upcoming purchase a home inspection is necessary for the lender to provide proof they are making a good investment with your purchase as well. With all the aspects and stress that may come from a real estate purchase, a home inspection can leave you resting easy with peace of mind with all of the necessary knowledge to make an educated decision.
