Should you have a home inspection done? Home inspections are a very good idea - for both buyers and sellers.
As a seller, it is a good idea to have a home inspection done to make yourself aware of any problems with your property. This will give you the opportunity to correct any items found. Making these repairs will benefit you in the long run. If the home inspection shows no major issues, this can help to justify the asking price of your property.
For the buyer, the inspection report will detail any needed repairs, giving you a better idea of what additional costs you will have after the purchase of the house or condo.
A complete home inspection will probably take about four hours to finish. The home inspector will check the condition of numerous items in your home. These will include all appliances and windows, the plumbing and water pressure, ceiling fans and electrical outlets, as well as the circuit breaker/electrical panel itself. The inspector will check for evidence of current or previous termite damage, roof leakage and structural concerns.
A well-maintained property tends to sell much more quickly and for a higher price than a property that needs numerous repairs.
