Buying a home is one of the most important investment decisions you will make in your lifetime.
As such, it makes sound financial sense to enlist the services of a qualified home inspection company to ensure that your new home does not come with some unpleasant surprises.
A home inspection will determine the structural and mechanical soundness of the home. Your home inspector will identify existing and potential problem areas, suggest practical low-cost solutions, and provide estimates regarding costs for any work required.
Upon completion of the actual inspection, a report summarizing the inspector's findings is generally provided to the potential buyer.
By commissioning a home inspection prior to purchase, you're protecting both yourself and your investment, as well as buying a little peace-of-mind.
Home inspection costs often range according to the size, age, and location of the home.
Your Realtor should be able to refer you to a selection of reputable home inspection companies.
