As summer turns to fall, the cooler weather and beautiful scenery offer prospective homebuyers the opportunity to locate their “home sweet home.” Whether you are looking at new construction or an existing home, hiring a home inspector is essential for identifying any problems and protecting your investment.
A certified home inspector visually examines the central systems – electric, heating, cooling, and plumbing. The roof, foundation, insulation, ventilation, doors, windows, and interior and exterior components are also examined. Additional fees may be assessed for pools, spas, or separate structures.
Reasons to Hire a Home Inspector
Protects Your Investment
The purpose of this service is to identify existing issues, including material defects. According to the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, a material defect refers to a problem that may diminish a property’s value. They may also refer to safety risks. The details of these issues, if any are found, will be included in the report.
You’re Renovating the House
The services of a home inspector are also useful when remodeling or adding on to a house. Most cities require inspections to be conducted as part of the permitting process, especially if the renovation involves relocating electricity or plumbing, or installing new framing or drywall. New utility hookups must also be checked per the City of Phoenix.
