Home Inspections

Why You Should Obtain A Home Inspection

As a prospective homebuyer, are you sophisticated in identifying problem areas in your potential new home? Most of us are not knowledgeable in identifying problem areas. You are in the process of making a very large investment, maybe the largest investment you’ll ever make. For just a small investment now, you may save substantial money in the future. Can you afford to not have a professional home inspector survey the premises for the integrity of the internal and external components of the dwelling?


Here are a few areas that home inspectors look at:

Structural
Electrical
Plumbing
Built-In Appliances
Safety Hazards
Home inspectors are not environmental specialists, but they can identify many safety hazards or dangerous conditions.
Miscellaneous
Other items may or may not be included in a standard home inspection. Some of these may be: septic systems, roofs, drainage problems, wood decks, patios or other exterior structures. Be sure and verify which, if any, of these items are included in your home inspection.
Normally Not Included
Termite, geological or land subsidence surveys and environmental or pollution inspections which should be completed separately for your own protection.
