If you are a potential home buyer who is looking for a professional home expert to protect your, to some extent, biggest investment in life, or if you are a professional realtor who is recommending a home inspector to your client, the first important question you may ask:
Why do I need a home inspector?
As a potential home buyer, I need a Home Inspector to:
- Detect major issues with the systems and components of the home, such as Roof, Exterior, Structure, Electrical, Heating, Cooling, Plumbing, Insulation, and Interior, prior to closing.
- Detect safety and health issues, such as illegal Additionsand Installations, potential fire hazard, mold in basement or attic, missing safety protection, etc.
- Detect the significantly deficient with installed equipment and components of home. This means they are unsafe or not performing their intended function.
- Report on any system or component that in professional opinion is near the end of its service life, such as roof coverings, furnace, AC, windows/doors, etc.
- Help me protecting my investment with good maintenance, so to enhance comfort, to extend life expectancies and to reduce my costs.
- Get life-time free technical support as long as I own the home.
As a professional realtor, I need a Home Inspector to:
- Gain a clear picture of the state of a home, then to communicate with potential buyers and help him/her to have reasonable expectations on the house.
- Aware of what repairs/issues are vital and what can be dealt with later. Then I can negotiate for the best interests of my client without threatening the deal.
- Minimize my liability of the transaction and help the client to make an informed decision.
- Team with and provide best professional services to my client, then to ensure a smooth house closing.
To summarize, a home inspection is comparable to going to the family doctor for a physical. The home inspector will inspect readily accessible systems and components of home and let you have a clear picture of the house present conditions. Therefore, a home inspector can minimize your risk and help you make a fully informed decision. In addition, the inspection fee is minimal in comparison to what you may have to pay later for a house closing. However, it may be the smartest money you can spend to protect your investment.
