CityNews weighs in on the importance of home inspections
While we at AmeriSpec understand the value of every inspection we provide, people remain skeptical. Investing in a home inspection might seem like something you could go without, but not knowing for sure what you’ll get with your new home could come back to haunt you.
CityNews talks about some of the horror stories of skipping an inspection and the cost of dealing with the aftermath. Some people will forgo a home inspection simply because they think the quality and information won’t be worth the money they spend. Others will assume their realtor is simply working with their local inspector in some scheme to get your money. Both are dangerous assumptions.
By simply doing your due diligence, you can avoid choosing the wrong inspector – or realtor. A proper realtor won’t pressure you into using “their” inspector, but rather provide you with options for a few reputable ones near you. The choice is always yours.
Taking the time to look into the value of a home inspection is important before investing in your home. Protect your investment by booking an inspection to stay ahead of things that may need repair in the near future – and also discover potentially deadly hazards like radon.
An inspection can uncover a lot about your property and provide you with the information and peace of mind needed to feel confident about your investment.
