Saving Money with Quality Home Inspections]
When you think of the purchase price of your home, do you think of cost of unknown repairs or the cost of inefficient systems in your home? Many first time home buyers don’t think about what it would cost if the roof leaks or the air conditioning systems fails just after the warranty runs out.
As your home inspector, I’m here to alert you of potential issues. My job is to be as thorough as possible so that you don’t have the heartache of unforeseen problems with your home. I can also point out if your systems aren’t running as efficiently as possible and make you aware of cost saving solutions.
Wondering if you need a home inspection to sell your home? Whether you’ve lived in your home a few years or few decades, a quality home inspection isn’t just for buyers, it’s for you too!
Sellers Save Money Too!
When you’ve lived in a home for years, it becomes a comfortable part of your life. Sometimes there are maintenance issues that get ignored because they’re not readily seen. The leaking sink may get fixed, but is there a leak in the basement that you haven’t noticed? The kitchen may get a remodel, but are you sure your stove was vented properly? Cracks in wall may seem like “character,” but do they indicate a larger problem in your foundation?
Selling your home without knowing what buyer’s might find in their inspection report is going into deal blind. It can cost you money, or even the sale of your home! Investing in a home inspection before you put your home on the market is a smart way to intercept any potential issues. You’ll have the knowledge you need to negotiate the sale in the best way possible.
Save Money with Maintenance Home Inspections
Home inspections can also save you money from a maintenance perspective. It’s true, not everyone thinks of getting their home inspected as a matter of maintenance. But it’s a really great idea. As you know, some home repairs and maintenance tips are obvious. You may notice clogged gutters, a missing shingle, or a constantly running toilet. Some aren’t as obvious. The longer you live in your home, the more these issues can creep up on unsuspecting home owners who are simply enjoying living in their home.
Quick repairs save money. If you’ve lived in your home for a few years, or a few decades, and haven’t had a home inspection lately, it’s time! Find out what repairs are urgent and which ones will be coming down the line. You’ll have peace of mind in knowing that the home you love is well maintained.
