Why you should INVEST in a home inspection

Whether you have purchased many homes, or you are a first-time buyer, a home inspection is highly recommended. While the home may look to be in exceptional shape, the home’s aesthetics can hide real problems. In fact, a recent survey by the National Association of Realtors found that 14% of sales are never finalized due to the home inspection.

Some common components an inspector will investigate are the homes appliances, windows, roof, air conditioner, electrical, plumbing and heating systems. Most inspection reports include the cost of deferred maintenance, these are things that will have pending replacements in the next five years.

You are also learning practical information about the home like where the main water shutoff valve is located and where the main fuel shutoff is.

The cost of a single-family home inspection ranges from around $350 to $500. Specialized radon and HVAC inspections add a little bit more to the cost. If you choose to get a radon test, you will understand if the radon levels in the house are at safe levels. Radon is an odorless gas that can cause lung disease.

In the end, the money is worth the investment. A quality home inspection can keep you from having to pay tens of thousands of dollars in repairs costs. You have actual physical documentation that informs you of the condition of the home. This is true even on new construction. For example, the air ducts could not be placed correctly.

An inspection report guarantees that you understand the condition of the home when the sale finalizes which can ultimately bring you peace of mind. All in all, you don’t want any major surprises shortly after moving into your new home.
