Why is it important to have an inspection done before purchasing or selling a home?

The same reason you’d take a used car to a mechanic before buying it — to make sure you are getting a good deal. Buying a home is a huge investment. It makes sense to know as much as you can about what you are getting. Although most of us know how to live in a house, we aren’t experts on how the mechanical systems of a home work. That’s why you call in an expert.

Inspections by professionals may reveal issues that are hidden from “untrained eyes.” Pro-active sellers can improve marketing power with a pre-listing inspection. Most buyers want to know there are no major issues prior to closing.
