Home Inspection

Home Inspection

One of the most important things you can have done before the purchase of your home is to have it inspected by a qualified home inspector. In fact, most lenders will not lend money until the inspection is completed.

Home inspections are important because an inspector can pick up on things that are not visible to the naked eye.

They will check that the foundation is in tact, and make sure that all electric and plumbing fixtures are in safe and correct working order.

They will also check for any and all safety features that may not be in accordance with local safety ordinances.

A home inspection is highly encouraged, regardless if your lender requires it or not. The last thing you want is to move into your new home only to find out you have shell out thousands of dollars because your ceiling begins to sag due to a faulty foundation.

Home inspections typically run anywhere from $300.00 to $400.00. This may vary depending on where you live and the size of your home.
