A home inspection is an in-person objective non invasive evaluation of the physical structure and systems of a home, and a functional check of all its major systems.
A home is the biggest investment most people make in their lifetimes. Since there can be serious flaws even in homes that appear to be in beautiful condition, setting up a professional home inspection will save you money, educate you about your home, and provide you some much-needed peace of mind.
If you're buying a home, getting a home inspection means you know about any problems and their solutions before you move in.
If you're selling a home, getting a home inspection means you know you're complying with full disclosure laws, and means you can consider selecting contractors rather than waiting for the buyer to do so.
If you've just done extensive remodeling, a home inspection can help you make certain the contractors did the job correctly.
A home can't fail an inspection, but its systems and structures just might. A professional home inspection means you have an independent opinion about the problems and their solutions, and so you have exactly what you need to make an informed decision.
