Whether you’re a first time homebuyer or about to settle down into your dream home, a full home inspection is a must for you and your family. Choosing the right home inspector can ultimately help you save money on your new home and prevent potential dangerous living situations. The following are Five Big Benefits to Having a Certified Home Inspection. 5 Big Benefits to Having a Certified Home Inspection 1. Home Inspections Can Inform You of Repairs Needed to Make the Home Safe   When buying a home, you will want to know the structural condition of the home you are wanting to buy. Furthermore, there are electrical and plumbing elements that you need to find out whether or not they are in proper working condition, and for how long you can expect them to function properly. There are many things that you may not be able to notice without the eyes of a professional home inspector who knows precisely what to look for. 2. Home Inspections Can Result in a Lower Purchase Price A certified home inspector may find issues with the home that give you the ability to offer a lower price to the seller. You generally have three options when issues are found: You can ignore them and buy the house anyway (NOT SMART), you can ask the seller to make some or all of the repairs before committing to the home, or you can negotiate a lower price than the seller is asking with the intention of making the repairs yourself once you own the home. It’s your decision, depending upon the type of mortgage loan you have been approved for. 3. Home Inspections Can Keep You From Making A Bad Investment Failure to get a professional home inspection could result in your having major regrets in the not-so-distant future. A thorough home inspection can keep you from purchasing a home with too many problems to fix. If a fixer-upper is what you want, that’s fine, but if you want a quality home that won’t be a “money pit” the entire time you reside in it, you should hire a home inspector to perform a thorough inspection. 4. Home Inspections Can Prove You are Making a Sound Investment Buying a home can be a tense experience for buyers and sellers, especially buyers. Because thousands upon thousands of dollars are involved in your decision, you may have difficulty determing whether or not you are making a good decision with any given home. Having a home inspection can help to ease your anxiety if it turns out the home has no serious issues. 5. InterNACHI Certified Home Inspectors Must Meet Strict Standards When choosing an individual to perform your home inspection, you should keep in mind that there are minimum standards that they must adhere to, especially InterNACHI Certified Home Inspectors. If your state requires a home inspection license, do not hire a home inspector that cannot produce one. If they aren’t certified and aren’t required to have continuing eductation every year, do not trust them with a large investment such as your next new home.
