Why do I need a home inspection?

Buying a home could be the largest single investment you will ever make. To minimize unpleasant surprises and unexpected difficulties, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the newly constructed or existing house before you buy it. A home inspection may identify the need for major repairs or builder oversights, as well as the need for maintenance to keep it in good shape. After the inspection, you will know more about the house, which will allow you to make decisions with confidence. If you already are a homeowner, a home inspection can identify problems in the making and suggest preventive measures that might help you avoid costly future repairs. If you are planning to sell your home, a home inspection can give you the opportunity to make repairs that will put the house in better selling condition.

In this classic episode of the Andy Griffith show Opie reminds us that we all should be honest and forthcoming when selling anything even a house.

Since all sellers aren't as forthcoming as Opie I recommned getting a home inspection on every home purchase.

 

How do I find a home inspector? You can ask friends or business acquaintances to recommend a home inspector they have used. Or, you can use the Find An Inspector search tool for a list of home inspectors in your area who belong to the non-profit professional organization. To have a list mailed to you, call 1-800-743-ASHI (2744). Also, real estate agents and brokers are familiar with the service and may be able to provide you with a list of names from which to choose. Whatever your referral source, you can be assured of your home inspector’s commitment to professional standards and business ethics by choosing one who has membership in ASHI.

Leave it up to Opie to send a great message to all. Loved the Andy Griffith Show, and don't think I ever saw this episode.

Any home buyer should get an unbiased assessment of the home they are interested in buying, and that would be through a home inspection.
