Sometimes people try to cut corners when buying a house. One of the short cuts they try to take is avoiding getting a home inspection in the sense of trying to save money so they can do things when they move in. One of the biggest mistakes anyone can make is avoiding getting a home inspection. Whether the house is new, used, or being built.
Home Inspections reveal so many unseen hidden facts that only a home inspector can and will find before it's too late. One key factor that home inspectors do is they check the electrical wiring to ensure that the house is properly grounded. This alone is very critical because if not checked a buyer could move in a house, plug everything up only for everything to get a shortage and burn out. Then they will hire an electrician which right there alone is more than most home inspections cost.
Other valuable reasons for getting a home inspections are checking the foundation of the property, along with the roof, & in many cases checking for termites. There are things that the naked eye cannot see and only a home inspector will know. You spend hundreds of dollars for the inspection but you save thousands over time. Also you can't put a price on piece of mind. Just knowing what's going on with your investment.
Giving your home a check up like you would do your body is extremely important. If you don't take care of your body your body won't last, same for your home. When people take short cuts they usually end up paying more later it's just a common law of life which applies especially to purchasing a home and taking the necessary steps to ensure you are not wasting money.
ALWAYS GET A HOME INSPECTION WHEN PURCHASING A NEW, USED, OR TO BE BUILT HOME!
