Why Get A Home Inspection?
Buying a house is one of the most important financial decisions of your life. It can be the greatest investment you ever made, or it can turn into a financial nightmare, often referred to as “The Money Pit.”
Because of the frequency of “Money Pit” purchases, the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) was formed in 1976, the first association of home inspectors in America.
ASHI is North America’s oldest and most respected professional society of home inspectors. ASHI’s goals have always been to build customer awareness of the importance of a quality home inspection and enhance the professionalism of home inspectors.
A home inspection can best be described as looking at the home you are buying through a “different set of eyes.” You know you like the house. You might like its size, location, distance from your job, floorplan, school district, or many other things about it. So, you know you want to buy it. What you need a home inspector for is to tell you exactly what you are buying.
Does the house have safety issues that could cause someone to get hurt? Does it have a mice or rat infestation in the crawlspace? Does it have a roof that needs to be replaced, or a problem with the foundation that holds the house up? Does it have an electrical panel or wiring not used anymore due to fire danger?
Is the furnace so old that it may need replaced in the next year or two? How about the water heater? Are there plumbing leaks? How about windows that have failing seals?
A house is actually made up of many individual systems and components and all of them can be broken, worn out, unsafe, or in need of maintenance. How will you know which ones to replace, maintain, or monitor? You won’t, and that is why there are double state licensed home inspectors at Move Smart Home Inspections ready to give you that information.
