Let's get real here for a minute.
You are buying a house that you hope will become your home. Would you go on a 3 dates with someone and get married the 4th time you meet?
How often do you think you will see this house, walk through it, look at its strengths and weaknesses before you close and move in?
You are more likely to keep yourself awake re-arranging your furniture, picking out paint colors or imagining the first dinner party than worrying about whether the GFI outlets near the sink are installed correctly or the garage door has the proper safety features.
You have spent hours, months even years preparing your finances and credit for this moment, I'm sure you want to know the house is safe and secure.
That is why you hire a home inspector.
Your home inspector will study this home, without bias, for safety issues and for longevity. You gain knowledge and peace of mind that will protect you, your family and your finances. You will have confidence in your purchase to add to the excitement of home ownership.
Your home inspection will give you one of the greatest returns on its investment and can potentially save you thousands.
I'm a CREIA certified home inspector. I have built Hammond Inspection Services to be more than just an inspection company. I started this blog to be more of a resource to home buyers, sellers and real estate agents.
