Home Buyers, Sellers and Owners:
The Benefits of a Professional Home Inspection to You
For the vast majority, the purchase and sale of a home is the single biggest financial decision of their lives! A professional home inspection completed by a qualified Home Inspector provides the potential home buyer/seller with the necessary information to make an informed decision on proceeding with the transaction.
Buying/selling a home involves a series of critical and important decisions. Once you have found that dream house that is just right for you, hiring a home inspector to educate you about the present condition of your new home is a sound and wise decision. This also holds true when buying a brand new home, whether it is a pre-delivery inspection (PDI) or the one year warranty inspection; the additional peace of mind that a professional home inspection offers is invaluable.
A home inspection provides the home buyer with an understanding of a home's present condition, habitability and safety. The professional inspector will perform a comprehensive visual inspection to assess the condition of the house and its systems. Inspections are intended to provide the client with a better understanding of property conditions, as observed at the time of the inspection.
We highly recommend and encourage the purchaser to attend the inspection and accompany the inspector in his analysis of the home systems.
Whom Can You Trust?
Choosing an a certified professional home inspector means you are choosing a professional you can trust to objectively, independently and apart from anyone's interests other than your own, provide you with a comprehensive, impartial analysis of the home's major systems and components.
