More and more real estate professionals are encouraging home buyers to invest in a home inspection before they purchase a property. The reason for this is simple, home inspections protect the seller, agents and buyer when it comes to purchasing a home.

Buyers learn about the property up front, so they can proceed with confidence and peace of mind. Sellers, especially those who’ve had pre-listing inspections benefit from a faster sale, there will be no surprises when it comes to closing the deal.

Three top reasons to have a home inspection:

1. Unbiased assessment

Many home buyers believe that a brand new home or a home that has been completely remodeled has little to no issues. But even the best home builders and remodeling contractors make mistakes. An impartial inspection can disclose items in need of repair to reduce buyer remorse after they purchase their new home.

2. Peace of mind

Whether the client’s home is old or new, an inspection can provide peace of mind when looking at purchasing one of the largest investments an individual may make.

3. Reduced listing time

By providing up front insight into the condition of the home, an impartial inspections can help you reduce the overall listing time. Providing the home inspection report with a full detail of issues the home prior to making an offer typically leaves buyers with fewer objections to purchasing.

The right home inspection should be thorough, clear and completely unbiased. Isn’t it best to know as much as you can about potential problems before you buy or sell a home? This is what home inspectors ensure every single one of their clients and Agents. Disclosure of items that are in need of repair protects sellers and buyers after the escrow closes.

As you can see home inspections are important. They provide an unbiased assessment of a home and property. This information is crucial when it comes to selling, buying or maintaining the most important investment many people will ever make: Their home.
