When to get a home inspection?
- Before a Real Estate Transaction - Most people associate home inspections with the process of buying a home and for a good reason. A home inspection will provide you the information to help make an informed decision about the purchase.
- Before a Remodel or Renovation - Although it is not normal, having a home inspection done before making a major investment in your property it is a good idea. This will allow you to evaluate what level of investment make sense by providing an assessment of the condition of systems in the home. It can also arm you with the information you need to have educated conversations when screening potential contractors.
- On a Regular Basis - While homes sit in one place, they are not static. Over time materials and conditions change with age and use. While many homeowners are aware of some of the changes going on with their property, often there are areas that are out of sight and mind. Having the condition of your property evaluated by a professional inspector is a great way to protect your investment as well as a good way to learn about new home safety standards. We recommend having your property inspected on at least four year interval.
