The Top Ten Reasons to Get Your Home Inspected

Updated: Nov 10, 2020

1.) You can’t judge a book by its cover.

It is cliché, but it is true. You never know what kind of damage can be done to a home structurally. When you hire a trained home inspector, you grant yourself peace of mind in knowing exactly where the home stands in its current state.

2.) It is a small price to pay for a long-term commitment.

If you’re planning to live in a home for a decade, why not ensure that it’s sound in its foundation? Hiring a licensed professional is responsible, accountable and wise. It both protects you and equips you with much needed information about a home.

3.) Keep yourself and your family safe.

When you invest in an inspection, you’re uncovering all of the potential safety hazards in the home. The sooner you identify these, the sooner you can correct them. Electrical wiring issues, plumbing deficiencies, problems with windows and roofing are a few concerns that Welcome Home Inspections can make you aware of.

4.) Save yourself money in the long run.

When it comes to what is likely the biggest purchase of your life, investing up front can save you a fortune later on down the road. Let an inspector show you potential future hazards in the home so you can best predict potential repairs before they become critical.

5.) Uncover pest control issues.

Termites and other WDO (wood destroying objects) can go undetected for long periods of time. With a trained inspector, you can rest assured that these issues will be thoroughly assessed. Welcome Home Inspections will provide you with recommendations for care and an in-depth report of findings.

6.) Forecast future expenditures.

If there are undetected imperfections in your home, Welcome Home Inspections will find them. If your dream property has some needed prepares, a thorough home inspection will allow you to make plans for future updates that may be needed.

7.) Reveal illegal installs or additions to the home.

If there have been any non-permitted additions made to the property, an inspection will uncover that. Rest assured that Welcome Home Inspections will do things by the books, and help to cover you as well.

8.) It can be used as a negotiation tool.

Did you know that buyers can use home inspections as a negotiation tool? Based upon the findings of an inspection report, a price reduction may be possible.

9.) It will allow you to protect your investment.

Above all, the home inspection report is a valuable educational resource. Welcome Home Inspections can suggest tailored tips for how to maintain your home as well as provide recommendations for repairs from trusted partners.

10.) Peace of mind.

It’s hard to put a price tag on the cost of putting anxiety to rest, but that internal peace is invaluable. Welcome Home Inspections will comb through the property and reveal unknown imperfections, painting the big picture for you.
