Why Do You Need A Home Inspection?

Buying a home is the single largest purchase most people will make in their lifetime. This purchase is one that involves many important decisions that will affect the lifestyle quality of you and your family for a long time.  A home inspection gives you the information you need to make an informed home investment decision, and minimize the chances of buying a house with problems you don’t know about.

What Is A Home Inspection?

Ideally, you would want to have your home inspected by an engineer, an electrician, a plumber, and other service technicians. This would be time consuming, expensive, and impractical.

A professional home inspection is a comprehensive, visual examination of a house and its systems. A professionally prepared home inspection report will describe areas of the home that need attention, give you maintenance suggestions, and familiarize you with your new home.

Buying a home is one of the most important financial decisions you will ever make. A home inspection gives you a greater understanding of the house you are about to buy, plus the information and peace of mind you need to make an informed decision.
