FAQ3. Why do I need a home inspection?
A home inspection summarizes the condition of a property, points out needs for repairs and identifies areas that may need attention in the near future. Buyers and sellers depend on an accurate home inspection to maximize knowledge of the property in order to make smart decisions before executing a contract for sale or purchase.
An inspection also points out positive aspects of a home, as well as maintenance necessary to keep it in good shape. In a real estate transaction, it allows parties to have a much clearer understanding of both the value and the needs of the property.
For homeowners, an inspection can identify problems that with preventative measures may avoid costly future repairs. Sellers gain a better understanding of conditions which may be discovered by a buyer's inspector, and provides an opportunity to make repairs to make one's home more desirable to potential buyers.
