Anyone looking to purchase a home, you should have the home inspected by a licensed and insured Home Inspector. One out of four home buyers fail to have the home inspected prior to closing and unfortunately become aware of defects, hazards and deficiencies with the home they just purchased and that they will be the ones to foot the bill for repairs and/or replacements.
If you are thinking of selling your home, a home inspection is equally important. You know your home and as a seller you are required to disclose everything, including any defects or deficiencies to the prospective buyers. Most buyers will have an inspection of your property performed prior to closing. Having an inspection will usually help you to avoid having the price of your home negotiated down because of issues that were discovered by the buyers home inspector. A home inspection prior to putting your home on the market is a small price to pay compared to the thousands of dollars it may cost you in repairs, replacement or lowering the price of your home. Sellers can usually spend $2 for every $1 of repairs or replacement or have the price of their home dropped by thousands after defects or deficiencies are found by the buyers inspector. You can avoid this by having a home inspection before marketing your home and you choose what repairs and replacements you wish to make or how much your asking price will be.
