5 reasons to use a home inspector

Buying a new home is not something you do every day, so it is important to bring in the professionals to make sure your sale goes right. Here are five reasons you should absolutely use a home inspector! 

 

1. Safety
Home inspectors are trained to look for potential dangerous issues in a home. They are able to test for mold and look for other harmful things.

 

2. Avoid a Big Mistake

If your inspector finds something that is dangerous or costly in their report, you may be able to walk away from the sale. This could save you from buying a home that isn't what it appears.

 

3. Pricing

After reviewing the findings of the home inspection with your inspector and real estate agent, you may be able to negotiate a better price on your home. This is something to consider when speaking with your agent about your inspection.

 

4. Insurance
Insurance companies may require certifications for different parts of your home, using a home inspector before you close will help you save time and money with your insurance company later.

 

5. Learning Opportunity

Home inspectors will be able to give you detailed information about your new home. This is a great tool to be able to plan for future improvements and potential issues as well as just learning the in's and out's of your new place.
