The Importance of a Home Inspection

Buying a home is an incredibly exciting process, especially once you have found a home you like! Many buyers are overwhelmed with excitement as they walk through a home that feels like the perfect fit: the neighbourhood is great, it's close to work and schools, the home itself has everything on their 'needs' list and even a handful of things on their 'wants' list. It's sparkling with that staged home look and they're already imagining where their belongings will find a new sweet spot. An offer is made and accepted, and the home officially is set to (hopefully) go to the new owners after the specified time. They find a home inspector just to make sure everything looks okay under the hood, and...

Mold. Cracks in the foundation. Pipes that need replacing. 

This is why having a home inspection completed by a third party is so important: because everything can look perfect on the outside, but on the inside you could be walking into a total disaster. No one wants to close on their dream home only to have to rack up expensive repairs within the first month of living there. Some shady sellers may try to claim the house is fine, no need for an inspection, or that one was just done and no issues came up, but never, ever settle for that. A home inspection is crucial in protecting this massive investment you are about to make. It can help you avoid a potential disaster and give you greater piece of mind when your realtor calls and tells you, "congratulations, come get the keys!"
