As a buyer, you need to protect your investment. A home is usually the most expensive, and most integral thing you buy in your lifetime so you need to know what to expect. There are numerous systems and elements that make up a house, and only when everything works together will it begin to feel like a home. An inspection can uncover problems that are not quickly evident such as structural, mechanical, moisture, insulation, insect, and other problems. Identifying these problems before finalizing the sale can help you make the decisions that are right for you.
As a seller, a pre-sale inspection can inform you about the details that might deter potential buyers, might cause a reduction in value, or what might be a required fix before a sale can be finalized. A pre-sale inspection can also offer peace of mind for potential buyers, increasing your chances for a quicker sale.
