Why Do I Need A Home Inspection?
Buying a home is one of the largest purchases you will make. It’s important to know as much as possible about it. A home inspector is trained to evaluate the home in detail and give you a report that allows you to make a good decision about the purchase. The report describes the home in detail and highlights areas that are problems.
A home inspection is a good idea even if you are already a homeowner. Many homeowners live in homes with serious problems that, if identified early, can save on repair costs. Water leaks can cause serious and costly problems, but if caught early can be repaired at little cost. A home inspection also gives you an outline of the routine home maintenance needed.

A home inspection is an objective visual analysis of a home’s structure and systems at the time of the inspection. It determines areas of a home that are not performing properly, as well as items that are beyond their useful life or unsafe. Inspections include the home’s interior and exterior, from roof to foundation, and exterior drainage and retaining walls. If problems or symptoms are found, the inspector may recommend further evaluation.
The inspection cost should not be the only consideration for hiring a home inspector. A good inspection that informs you of all potential problems is worth the money. A “bargain” inspector may give an inferior report. Remember: Once you’ve purchased the home, it may be costly to repair problems that were not in the report.
