Why Get a Home Inspection?
Home inspections are a necessary assessment tool to anyone who is buying a house (whether it be an existing structure or a new build), selling a house, or owns a house.
Being a home owner can be a highly rewarding experience. Aside from purchasing a real estate investment, owning your own home can provide you with a great sense of security, pride and power. But with great power comes great responsibility, and that’s exactly what a home is: a responsibility that will require a lot of WORK!
Homes that are improperly constructed or improperly cared for may be a bad investment, and more work than you’re willing to put into them. That’s why it is important to understand the ins and outs, pros and cons of the home you’re interested in buying so you know if it’s a responsibility you’re willing to take on.
And don’t forget that once you’ve navigated your way through the home buying process, you’re responsible for the health and functionality of your home. If you protect and maintain it responsibly, it will loyally serve you for many years in all kinds of weather. However, if you neglect to anticipate its’ needs and care for it, it will become unreliable. Its’ systems will fail: its’ foundation may crumble, its’ roof may fall, and its’ structure may deteriorate.
