Should You Hire a Home Inspector?

The experience of buying a house can be both exciting and stressful. As the buyer, you have many decisions to make. One of these decisions involves whether or not to have your dream house inspected. When people ask me whether they should have the house inspected, my answer to them is one word: ABSOLUTELY!!!
A home inspection is in many ways similar to taking an auto mechanic with you on a test drive of a new or used car. Just as cars are not perfect, no house is perfect and there are likely to be some defects or safety issues that you as the buyer will not notice on your own. A home inspector will evaluate the major components of the house and help you get to know the house first-hand before you decide to purchase it and enter what is often a lifelong commitment. A home inspector can help you determine if the house has any material defects or safety issues of which you as the buyer need to be aware. Do not be alarmed if your house has some defects or issues. No matter how well the house has been maintained, no house is perfect.
I see many defects and safety issues during my inspections. The most common and serious safety issues I discover involve amateur electrical work. While there are many home maintenance tasks the average homeowner can handle safely, electrical work is not one of them. This is just one of many instances where a trained and experienced home inspector is needed to help determine whether or not a defect exists or if you and your family will possibly be at risk.
In addition to evaluating your electrical system, your home inspector will also inspect the structure of the house, the roof, plumbing, heating and cooling systems, and other readily accessible areas of the house. A home inspector performs all these services for one reasonable fee. It is money well spent. Especially if the inspector discovers a serious safety issue like a defective furnace or a material defect that will be costly to replace like a worn out roof.
The benefits of a home inspection are undeniable. Not only will a home inspection educate you as the buyer on the condition of a house, it will identify visible defects that adversely affect the value of the house or put you and your family at physical risk. Having a home inspection done before the purchase of a house is one of the best small investments you can make in the single largest financial purchase of your life.
