Why is a professional Inspection so important…
THINK ABOUT IT… If you are buying a used car for a few hundred dollars, you will likely have someone look it over for you — unless you are an expert mechanic. WHY? You want to know before you shell out your money that the car will perform for you and you want to know if expensive repairs may be needed now or in the near future.
If you go to that much trouble for a small investment that depreciates every day you own it — Why, on earth, wouldn’t you do the same for a $100,000, $200,000 or more investment that is expected to be worth more when you sell it than it is the day you buy?!?
Not only does the inspection discover defects. A pre-purchase inspection will help you, the buyer, know the property you are buying and help you feel comfortable with your purchase. We perceive that structures are built to last forever, but integral parts and systems will wear out on a predictable basis. An inspection will help you plan and budget for these expenses and view them realistically. Additional services can also be included: you may need foundation or roofing experts to assist you. Radon, asbestos, lead paint, or other inspections may also be desired. A typical home inspection in this area runs approximately 35000 to 600 dollars.
