Should I get a Home Inspection?

WITHOUT QUESTION. You’re not just buying your future home, you’re also buying any problems hidden under the roof, in the heating and cooling system, electrical panel, plumbing or the attic. Getting a home inspection is your chance to make an informed decision to help avoid those problems—or, at least, use the results to negotiate the terms of the sale with the seller to help pay for repairs.

A good thorough inspection will start at the roof and end at the foundation, with analysis of the plumbing, electrical, heating/cooling, and other major components. The inspection will also include tests for gas leaks and select thermal imaging scans. A thorough inspection by a Certified InterNACHI Home Inspector costs from $350.00 to $950.00 and takes 3 to 6 hours, depending on the age and square footage of the house. 

After you receive your detailed report, you will be able to make an informed decision as to whether there are any issues that need to be addressed with your Realtor and the seller. You can ask the seller to pay for repairs or give you a credit at closing so that you can choose the contractors and materials you prefer.

Inspection of new construction is important also, just because it is new does not mean there are not hidden safety issues.
