When should you invest in a home inspection?
During a sale and / or purchase:
When buying a new property, accurate and detailed home inspection gives you a valuable bargaining chip. If we discover any issues or hazards in the property, as a buyer you are entitled to negotiate on repairs or price, or pull out of the sale altogether.
For sellers, home inspection gives you the opportunity to qualify your property before putting it on the market, so you can avoid costly issues down the road.
While maintaining your property:
Our home inspectors can provide in-depth details on system life expectancy, such as plumbing, heating and other major systems in the home. This gives you an opportunity to repair or replace any systems that might act up, saving you a huge chunk of money in the future.
MVP Home Inspections will also provide priceless advice and education on how to maintain your property correctly, so you can protect your investment for years to come.
Safe electrical wiring is essential. Look for the condition of service entrance wires, service panels, breakers, fuses & disconnects. Also note of the number of outlets.
Your inspector should describe your home cooling & heating system, energy source, & inspect the central and through-wall cooling equipment and age of the unit.
Thoroughly examine the water supply, drainage systems, water heating equipment & fuel storage systems including drainage pumps & sump pumps and valves.
An inspection of the inside of the home can reveal plumbing leaks, insect damage, rot, construction defects, & other issues. An inspector should take a close look.
A well-maintained roof protects you from rain, snow, and other forces of nature. Take note of the roof’s age, conditions of flashing, roof draining systems and more.
The inspector should look at sidewalks, driveways, steps, windows, and doors. A home’s siding, trim, and surface drainage also are part of an exterior inspection.
Five reasons not to skip the Home Inspection.
- It Provides an Out:
A quality home inspection can reveal critical information about the condition of a home and its systems. This makes the buyer aware of what costs, repairs and maintenance the home may require immediately, and over time. If a buyer isn't comfortable with the findings of the home inspection, it usually presents one last opportunity to back out of the offer to buy.
A home inspection can detect safety issues like radon, carbon monoxide and mold which all homes should be tested for. Make sure that your home-buying contract states that should such hazards be detected, you have the option to cancel the offer to buy.
- Negotiating Tool:
The home inspection report presents an opportunity to ask for repairs and/or request a price reduction or credit from the seller. Work with your realtor to understand what requests can and should be made to negotiate a better deal.
- Forecast Future Costs:
A home inspector can approximate the installation age of major systems in the home like plumbing, heating and cooling, and critical equipment like water heaters. They can diagnose the current condition of the structure itself, and tell you how long finishes have been in the home. All components in the home have a "shelf-life. Understanding when they require replacement can help you make important budgeting decisions.
- Protect Your Investment:
The home inspector is a valuable educational resource. He or she can suggest specific tips on how to maintain the home and ultimately save you thousands of dollars in the long term.
